How to decrypt field values, data type is Text(Encrypted)


I'm moving my production data to sql server, working on data migration. In my org, there is a Text(Encrypted) field, I want to see that field values. As i used that field in apex class, I'm unable to change the field type. Please suggest me how to Decrypt the data.
