Though Jesus Christ had been revealed
By all the prophets and the law,
The glory of our God concealed
The Christ whom sinners plainly saw.
The Christ was hidden in plain sight
(Except to those who searched Him out)
When, on the cross, He fought our fight
Until His great triumphant shout.
These deeds and words were all in view
Which David clearly had foretold
When moved to write Psalm twenty-two
About the Christ they would behold.
O Christ, enlighten now my mind
With truth concealed from the lost
To show the wondrous things I find
Revealing Your salvation's cost!
