BEHOLD, I COME
"Behold, I come," our Savior said,
The Savior promised long,
"I come to do Thy will, O God,"
And thus our Hope was born.
Behold, the virgin has conceived,
And born a Son of flesh;
His name is called Immanuel,
God dwells in human flesh!
The angels left their high abode
To see this mystery-
The great, almighty, sov'reign God,
A babe of feeble clay!
Mortals beheld His lovely face,
The Father's only Son:
How full of truth, how full of grace,
Christ came to save His own.
His spotless life of righteousness
And sin-atoning death
Fulfilled His Father's holy will,
And satisfied His wrath.
Our glad hosannas, Prince of Peace,
Your glories shall proclaim:
Enthroned in heaven as our King,
We love to praise Your name.
