This was the Hope before the whole twelve tribes:
They laboured till He came, by day and night.
Yet when He came they would not own Him Christ
Or that this title was righteously ascribed.
God found the Man who answered to His mind,
Whose excellence was human and divine
Since He was holy, harmless and undefiled:
So He anointed Him for His delight.
This was the Christ foreknown before all time
Who proved His worth in His resplendent life;
This is the Christ in whom our souls can hide,
Who has redeemed us at a transcendent price.
