Acappella - Angels Long To Look lyrics

Chorus:
Angels long to look into these things (repeat 3x)
The glory of Jesus

He has given us new birth into a living hope
Through his resurrection from the dead
He has given us a new birth into inheritance
That can never perish, spoil or fade
In this we greatly rejoice even though we suffer
Grief and trials, we have genuine faith
We are filled with joy, we love him, we believe in him
Even though we have not seen his face

Joy inexpressible and glorious
We are receiving the goal of our faith

Repeat Chorus

He prophets intently searched, searched with the greatest care
To find the time when Christ would come
It was not revealed to those who were searching then
But now we know the glory of the Son
Concerning this salvation the grace that has come to us
Praise God the mystery's been revealed
We are filled with joy, we love him we believe in him
And angels long to look in these things

Joy inexpressible and glorious
We are receiving the goal of our faith

Reapeat Chorus

Scriptural Reference:

"Praise be to God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, and into an inheritance that can never perish, spoil or fade . . . In this you greatly rejoice, though now for a little while you may have had to suffer grief in all kinds of trials. These have come so that your faith . . . may be proved genuine and may result in praise, glory, and honor when Jesus Christ is revealed. Though you have not seen him, you love him; and even though you do not see him now, you believe in him and are filled with an inexpressible and glorious joy, for you are receiving the goal of your faith, the salvation of your souls. Concerning this salvation, the prophets, who spoke of the grace that was to come to you, searched intently and with the greatest care, trying to find out the time and circumstances to which the Spirit of Christ in them was pointing when he predicted the sufferings of Christ and the glories that would follow. It was revealed to them that they were not serving themselves but you, when they spoke of the things that have now been told to you by those who have preached the gospel to you by the Holy Spirit sent from heaven. Even angels long to look into these things." 1 Peter 1:3-12
