5 Messiah's come — with joy behold
The days by prophets long foretold:
Judah, thy royal sceptre's broke,
And time still proves what Jacob spoke.
6 Daniel, thy weeks are all expir'd,
The time prophetic seals requir'd;
Cut off for sins, but not his own,
Thy prince Messiah did atone.
7 The famous temple, Solomon,
Is by the latter far out-shone:
It wanted not thy glittering store,
Messiah's presence grac'd it more.
8 We see the prophecies fulfill'd
In Jesus that most wond'rous child:
His birth, his life, his death combine
To prove his character divine.
9 Jesus, thy gospel firmly stands
A blessing to these favor'd lands:
No infidel shall be our dread,
Since thou art risen from the dead.
