1. There is a great mystery,
    A wonderful story;
    For ages ’twas hidden,
    Now shown in His wisdom;
    ’Tis a divine romance
    Of God and man in time;
    Beyond understanding,
    Yet seen in God’s speaking.
    • God fell in love with man;
      For only God’s love can
      Make man just the same as He
      In life and in nature.
      We are His expression,
      His bride, His enlargement;
      Forever, together,
      As living, insep’rable as one couple
  2. Though He was rejected
    By men who were blinded;
    His love is constraining,
    His heart still unchanging;
    Thus in incarnation
    Came He as salvation;
    His name is called Jesus,
    And He came to seek us.
  3. Though born as a sinner,
    His blood has redeemed me.
    He suffered on Calv’ry,
    Then raised up in glory,
    To regenerate me.
    Now joined in one spirit
    I love to enjoy Him,
    For I’ve been forgiven!
  4. His love is so tender,
    To Him I’ll surrender;
    His name is so precious,
    I gladly call, “Jesus!“
    His Person’s so charming,
    My heart ever winning;
    I’ll hold back no longer,
    I’ll love Him forever.
