1 We have seen our great Salvation
Sent by God's determined plan.
He's the Light that lightens sinners,
He lays bare the heart of man.
Christ became our humble servant,
Touching sinners, meeting needs;
For His love and pity moved Him
To relieve sin's misery.
Oh once more we would see Jesus
In the glorious gospel's light!
There our God unveils His glory
In the face of Jesus Christ.
2 We have heard God's holy verdict,
""All who sin must surely die,
To be crushed by righteous judgment;
Justice must be satisfied!""
Christ became our Mediator,
Dying in our guilty stead.
there His mercy kissed His justice,
Reconciling God and man.
3 We still view the risen Savior
Through the blessed eyes of faith.
And by such a view of glory
To His image we are changed.
Christ will soon return triumphant,
All his glory on display.
By achieving our redemption,
He has earned eternal praise!
