It's true. When one looks back over the scriptures, prophets foretold of Christ coming and all He would do for mankind. That was their mission. (Since then, prophets have testified that Christ has come, and foretell of His coming again.) What a wonderful mission: to testify of Christ and foretell of the hope He brings to us all!
I'm posting Josh, because it's Josh. Gorgeous, of course.
But he doesn't sing about the prophets! So I'm also sharing MoTab as well.
And here are the lyrics, with a verse that I have never heard before. But look how it is so full of hope that the Savior can lift us and give us peace and rest.
It came upon the midnight clear,
That glorious song of old,
From angels bending near the earth,
To touch their harps of gold:
"Peace on the earth, goodwill to men
From heavens all gracious King!"
The world in solemn stillness lay
To hear the angels sing.
Still through the cloven skies they come,
With peaceful wings unfurled;
And still their heavenly music floats
O'er all the weary world:
Above its sad and lowly plains
They bend on hovering wing,
And ever o'er its Babel sounds
The blessed angels sing.
O ye beneath life's crushing load,
Whose forms are bending low,
Who toil along the climbing way
With painful steps and slow;
Look now, for glad and golden hours
Come swiftly on the wing;
Oh rest beside the weary road
And hear the angels sing.
For lo! the days are hastening on,
By prophets seen of old,
When with the ever-circling years
Shall come the time foretold,
When the new heaven and earth shall own
The Prince of Peace, their King,
And the whole world send back the song
Which now the angels sing.
