1 From ages hidden, and generations,
Was the sweet mystery, of Jesus in us,
God willed to make it known, riches of glory,
We know the mystery of Christ in us.

Refrain

Preaching the Word of God,
Hidden for ages,
Christ is our life,
He lives in us.

2 Now manifested in all His saints,
The hope of glory, this mystery
We now proclaim Him, knowing of Jesus,
He is our life and we uplift Him.

3 Teach now every man, and with all wisdom,
Present each man, now completed in Christ,
In our new self, His power working,
Revealing mystery, of Christ in us.
