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.
