Behold the amazing gift of love

Behold the amazing gift of love
the Father has bestowed
on us, the sinful sons of men,
to call us sons of God!

Concealed as yet this honor lies,
by this dark world unknown,
a world that knew not, when he came,
ev'n God's eternal Son.

High is the rank we now possess;
but higher we shall rise;
though what we shall herafter be
is hid from mortal eyes:

Our lives, we know, when he appears,
shall bear his image bright;
for all his glory, full disclosed,
shall open to our sight.

A hope so great and so divine
may trials well endure;
and purify us all from sin,
as Christ himself is pure.

(1674-1748) and William Cameron (1761-1811)
