1 A seedling of Jesse shall flower,
A ruler descend from his line,
Instinct with the spirit of power,
The spirit of wisdom divine.
2 A judge to reprove for the meek,
The mantle of justice to wear,
To render their rights to the weak,
The wrongs of the poor to repair.
3 Then none shall devour or hurt,
When God has His dwelling with men;
The babe with the scorpion shall sport,
And play on the cockatrice’s den.
4 Then children the tiger shall lead;
The wolves shall lie down with the flocks;
The kid with the leopard shall feed,
The lion eat straw with the ox.
The word that goes forth from His mouth
A light to the nations shall be,
To spread from the north to the south,
And flow like the tides to the sea.
