Numbers 24:17 (Listen)


17   I see him, but not now;
    I behold him, but not near:
  a star shall come out of Jacob,
    and a scepter shall rise out of Israel;
  it shall crush the forehead1 of Moab
    and break down all the sons of Sheth.

1. Now are the days fulfilled, 
God’s Son is manifested, 
Now His great majesty 
In human flesh is vested. 
Behold the mighty God, 
By whom all wrath is stilled, 
The woman’s promised Seed - 
Now are the days fulfilled. 

2. Now are the days fulfilled, 
Lo, Jacob’s Star is shining; 
The gloomy night has fled 
Wherein the world lay pining. 
Now, Israel, look on Him 
Who long thy heart hath thrilled; 
Hear Zion’s watchmen cry: 
Now are the days fulfilled. 

3. Now are the days fulfilled, 
The child of God rejoices; 
No bondage of the Law, 
No curses that it voices, 
Can fill our hearts with fear; 
On Christ our hope we build. 
Behold the Prince of Peace– 
Now are the days fulfilled.
