He then did hear in days of old
The message that to John was told
The angel which the news did bring
He herd him talk and herd him sing
 
And knew before the days of John
What glories were on him to dawn
The message which he did receieve
He herd and saw and did believe
 
He knew full well what John should hear
Concerning times and latter years
When God again should set his hand
To gather Israel to their lands
 
The gospel then from darkest shades
Should rise and go with rapid strides
Till nations distant far and near
The glorious proclamation hear. [p. [172]]
