BEHOLD THE SAVIOR
Behold, He came, our Savior God!
He came to save His own:
By His own blood and righteousness,
The work was fully done.
Behold, He died, the Substitute!
He bore the wrath of God:
The sword of justice and of wrath
Was drowned in Jesus' blood.
Behold, He rose, He rose for us!
Triumphant o'er the grave:
Freed from our sins, He lives above,
The risen Christ can save.
Behold, He saves! Yes, Jesus saves!
Sinner, there's hope for you:
Come, trust His blood and righteousness,
Believe, and He'll save you.
Behold, He reigns! The God-man reigns!
He reigns as sov'reign Lord:
All creatures soon must bow and say,
That Jesus Christ is Lord!
Behold, He comes again: Rejoice!
Let ransomed sinners sing:
We'll see that One who died for us
We soon shall see our King!
(Tune: America the Beautiful)
