"The Lord hath made known His salvation: His righteousness hath He openly showed in the sight of the heathen" (Psalm 98:2).
Out in the open our Savior had spoken:
In three days He'd rise from the dead.
Three days elapsed; His word was not broken:
He's risen indeed as He said!
Out in the open the stone has been moved;
Come see now the place where He was.
This is the showcase where our Savior proved
Whatever He's promised, He does!
Out in the open is God's declaration,
With proof that has more than sufficed,
There's only one name that affords us salvation:
The name of our Lord Jesus Christ!
Out in the open, O Lord God and Savior,
In newness of life we now walk.
Help us to show this by outward behavior
And openly, too, in our talk.
