The scepter shall not depart from Judah, nor a lawgiver from between his feet until Shiloh come; and unto Him shall the gathering of the people be. Genesis 49:10
Heaven is ringing with glad exultations,
Bright is the hope that so lately was dim;
Shiloh has come with a gift for the nations,
Lo! He will gather the people to Him.
Spread the glad message, ye murmuring rivers,
Breezes repeat it from mountain to sea,
Shiloh has come with the strength that delivers;
Shiloh has come, and His people are free.
Prophets have told of His greatness and glory,
Poets have sung of His wisdom and might;
Still have they shadowed but faintly the story,
Still has the hope been excelled in the sight.
Shiloh has come, and His presence is blessing,
Shiloh has come from the Father above;
Angels adore Him, His glories confessing,
Mortals are won to His marvelous love.
