Jesus Christ, Begotten Son of God

 

Prophets witnessing a hea’vnly vision

Heard God’s voice extend a clear commission.

Bearing record, they fulfilled their mission

To proclaim the Christ, the Lamb of God:

“We bear testimony of our Savior

That He lives, He lives! For we saw Him,

Even on the right hand of the Father:

Jesus Christ, Begotten Son of God!”

 

They saw glories perfect and Eternal,

Tasted sufferings in realms infernal;

To their minds was open’d a supernal

Understanding of the ways of God!

They bore testimony of our Savior

That He lives, He lives! For we saw Him,

Even on the right hand of the Father:

Jesus Christ, Begotten Son of God!”

 

Praise our God, who answers each appealing,

By the Spirit’s gift to mind an feeling.

Granting we may know, through His revealing.

Jesus Christ, beloved Son of God!

We bear testimony of our Savior That He Lives,

The Spirit bearing witness

That he stands in glory with the Father,

Jesus Christ, Begotten Son of God!

 

Sing the joyous tidings to each nation:

At his hand, the Father wrought creation;

His atoning blood has brought salvation:

By Him, we’re begotten unto God!

We bear testimony of our Savior That He Lives

And in the flesh we’ll see Him standing at the right hand of the Father:

Jesus Christ, Begotten Son of God.
