Come Behold the Wondrous Mystery

Verse 1
Come behold the wondrous myst’ry
In the dawning of the King
He the theme of heaven’s praises, robed in frail humanity
In our longing in our darkness
Now the light of life has come
Look to Christ who condescended
Took on flesh to ransom us
 
Verse 2
Come behold the wondrous myst’ry
He the perfect Son of Man
In His living in His suff’ring, never trace nor stain of sin
See the true and better Adam
Come to save the hellbound man
Christ the great and sure fulfillment
Of the law in Him we stand
 
Verse 3
Come behold the wondrous myst’ry
Christ the Lord upon the tree
In the stead of ruined sinners, hangs the Lamb in victory
See the price of our redemption
See the Father’s plan unfold
Bringing many sons to Glory
Grace unmeasured love untold
 
Verse 4
Come behold the wondrous myst’ry
Slain by death the God of life
But no grave could e’er restrain Him
Praise the Lord He is alive
What a foretaste of deliv’rance, how unwavering our hope
Christ in power resurrected
As will we be when He comes
 
Tag
Come behold the wondrous myst’ry
Slain by death the God of life
But no grave could e’er restrain Him
Praise the Lord He is alive
