Answer:  LOW AND BEHOLD

(Good pun!  It took me a bit to figure it out.  All of the clue words were old favorites, but all of their jumbles came up as new.  I got all of them immediately.  The answer letter layout kept me off balance for a good bit.  The quotation marks had me puzzled for a while.  The expression is kind of redundant, but I guess it’s called for when you’re dealing with something so awe inspiring.  I’ve flown over the Grand Canyon, but I’ve yet to visit it.  Some day.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
