393. Something Which is Known

1 Something which is known to have been from the beginning:
this we have heard and seen with our own eyes;
something we have touched and have carefully watched:
the Word who is life, this we share with you.

Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia, alleluia!

2 This is the life of our God so gracious,
Word become flesh: there is no greater wonder.
All that we have witnessed became new vision:
this our hope for you, alive in God's own spirit. [Refrain]

3 He it is in whom we have found the light of truth,
source of our hope, abiding gift of God's love.
Through that love we pass and are born in life unending:
Jesus, our Lord, the fullness of our joy. [Refrain]
