Come Behold the Wondrous Mystery: Hymn Wednesday

VERSE 1 Come behold the wondrous mystery 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

See the true and better Adam Come to save the hell-bound man Christ the great and sure fulfillment Of the law; in Him we stand

VERSE 3 Come behold the wondrous mystery 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 mystery 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 deliverance How unwavering our hope Christ in power resurrected As we will be when he comes

What a foretaste of deliverance How unwavering our hope Christ in power resurrected As we will be when he comes
