That We May Believe


Oh awaken, awaken all you children
To the awe and the astonishment and fear
Oh awaken, Awaken to the Wonder
To the Wonder that the Son of God is here

Oh the Blessed beauty of the Begotten
By God the Father from all eternity
Who reflecting all God’s radiant glory
Now the image of His person we can see

Tear the veil from our eyes, let us clearly see
This unimaginable reality
Beyond all desires, more than we can conceive
Light of Lights shine on us that we may believe.

Bridge
Now let us tremble at Christ’s incarnation
And arouse all the emotions we can bear
For Immanuel has now come to save us
So the Name above all names we shall declare! 

Oh the marvel the majesty and mystery
Now no stranger story ever has been told
He created and sustains the universe
Which by the Word of His power He upholds

Holy Spirit, pray awaken us from sleep
To the awe and admiration Christ deserves
Then our joy will be full when God is Hallowed
As the cosmic glory of Christ is observed

Tear the veil from our eyes, let us clearly see
This unimaginable reality
Beyond all desires, more than we can conceive
Light of Lights shine on us that we may believe.

John 20:30–31
