Hymn 374Play music
1 Behold th' amazing gift of love
The Father hath bestowed
On us,the sinful sons of men,
To call us sons of God!
2 Concealed as yet this honour lies,
By this dark world unknown —
A world that knew not,when he came,
E'en God's beloved Son.
3 High is the rank we now possess;
But higher we shall rise,
Though all we shall hereafter be
Is hid from mortal eyes.
4 But this we know,when he appears
We'll bear his image bright;
For all his glory,full disclosed,
Shall open to our sight.
