Once our blessèd Christ of beauty
Was veiled off from human view;
But through suffering, death and sorrow
He has rent the veil in two.

Refrain

O behold the man of sorrows,
O behold Him in plain view;
Lo! He is the mighty conqueror,
Since He rent the veil in two.
Lo! He is the mighty conqueror,
Since He rent the veil in two.

Now He is with God the Father,
Interceding there for you;
For He is the mighty conqueror,
Since He rent the veil in two.

Refrain

Holy angels bow before Him,
Men of earth give praises due;
For He is the well belovèd
Since He rent the veil in two.

Refrain

Throughout time and endless ages,
Heights and depths of love so true;
He alone can be the giver
Since He rent the veil in two.
