280. The Unveiled Christ

1 Once our blessèd Christ of beauty
Was veiled off from human view;
But thro' suffering, death and sorrow
He has rent the veil in two.

Chorus:
O behold the Man of Sorrows,
O behold Him in plain view;
Lo! He is the mighty conqu'ror,
Since He rent the veil in two.
Lo! He is the mighty conqu'ror,
Since He rent the veil in two.

2 Now He is with God the Father,
Interceding there for you;
For He is the mighty conqu'ror,
Since He rent the veil in two. (Chorus)

3 Holy angels bow before Him,
Men of earth give praises due;
For He is the well-belovèd
Since He rent the veil in two. (Chorus)

4 Thro'out time and endless ages,
Heights and depths of love so true;
He alone can be the giver
Since He rent the veil in two. (Chorus)
