The lyrics are wonderful. True poetry, no doubt. But when you can compose a melody embedded with a texture that is able to make you feel what the lyrics are describing–the message of creation, fall, redemption, and consummation–that's when you have a great song. Listen, feel, reflect, and be blessed. You can stream the album by clicking this link.

Behold The Christ

From Sojourn’s latest album “New Again” Written and performed by Whitney Bozarth

Verse One See all creation pure and bright Abounding forth in radiant light Eternal God who made our home And made a people called his own

See the darkness enter in All of creation stained with sin Oh, what could overcome the night From heaven’s throne descends the light From heaven’s throne descends the light

Chorus

The hope of promises fulfilled From prophets long foretold The author of all life, behold the Christ Descended down to men, then lifted up to die Who crushed the grip of sin, behold the Christ

Verse Two

See the Son lay down his life. The innocent for those defiled Forgiveness we may now receive Oh, Sinner, won’t you now believe Oh, Sinner, won’t you now believe

Chorus

The hope of promises fulfilled From prophets long foretold The author of all life, behold the Christ Descended down to men, then lifted up to die Who crushed the grip of sin, behold the Christ

Verse Three Oh, see Him coming for his bride Wearing spotless robes of white All of our sorrow is replaced With joy, as we behold his face With joy, as we behold his face
