Zechariah 6:12-13
Then speak to him, saying, ‘Thus says the Lord of hosts, saying:

“Behold, the Man whose name is the BRANCH!
From His place He shall branch out,
And He shall build the temple of the Lord;
Yes, He shall build the temple of the Lord.
He shall bear the glory,
And shall sit and rule on His throne;
So He shall be a priest on His throne,
And the counsel of peace shall be between them both.” ’

Hymn: TLH 645, st. 1,2,5: Behold, a Branch Is Growing

Hymnary.org Organ Audio

1. Behold a branch is growing 
As of loveliest form and grace, 
As prophets sung, foreknowing; 
It springs from Jesse’s race 
And bears one little Flower 
In midst of coldest winter, 
At deepest midnight hour. 

2. Isaiah hath foretold It 
In words of promise sure, 
And Mary’ s arms enfold It, 
A virgin meek and pure. 
Through God’s eternal will 
This Child to her is given 
At midnight calm and still. 

5. O Savior, Child of Mary, 
Who felt our human woe; 
O Savior, King of Glory. 
Who dost our weakness know, 
Bring us at length, we pray. 
To the bright courts of heaven 
And to the endless day.
