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 beloveĢ€d 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.
