Isaiah 48:6 (NIV)
You have heard these things: look at them all. Will you not admit
them? From now on I will tell you of new things, of hidden things unknown to you.
And so the unknown God to the sinner
Becomes the known God to the saint
Due to a penitent heart for personal sin,
Due to eyes blinded but now opened wide to see
The Blessed, anguished, beautiful, horrible Cross of Calvary
Where the Savior bore our sins upon a tree.
And it is only when the gift of salvation is freely received
That the redeemed soul can truly celestially see.
For it is only by the gift of faith through Christ
That the unknown is now known,
The unseen is now seen
And the heart is made completely new
And white as glistening snow!
