Behold the wondrous mystery

††††† Of the incarnate God -

††††† The Son of God a man became,

††††† Assuming flesh and blood.

††††† The angels watched with wonder,

††††† And came to sing and tell

††††† The love of our descending God,

††††† The Christ, Immanuel.

 

 

Mortals, by faith, behold Him now -

††††† The Fatherís only Son,

††††† Became a man that He might die

††††† And for our sins atone.

††††† When He had fulfilled all things,

††††† He went to Calvary,

††††† Endured the wrath of God for us,

††††† And put our sins away!

 

 

The Son of God, the Son of Man,

††††† Exalted, King of kings,

††††† Now rules the world for those He bought,

††††† Sovereign over all things.

††††† When every ransomed sinner,

††††† At last, is saved by grace,

††††† Then Christ will come and take us home,

††††† To reign with Him in peace.
