Behold, The Wonders of the Cross

(Tune: #497 When I Can Read My Title Clear -- CM)

1. Creationís open volume stands,

††† And speaks Godís praise abroad,

††† And everything, made by His hands,

††† Declares that He is God.

 

2. But in the grace that rescued man

††† Godís brightest glory shines,

††† For on the cross (How wise the plan!)

††† Itís drawn in crimson lines!

 

3. Behold, the wonders of the cross,

††† Where God our Savior died.

††† My spirit life eternal draws

††† From Jesusí bleeding side!

 

4. I shall forever praise the name

††† Of God all-wise alone,

††† Whose gloryís seen in Christ the Lamb,

††† Whose blood for sin atoned!
