Needham.

The Prince of Peace.

Behold, the Prince of Peace,

The chosen of the Lord,

God’s well beloved Son, fulfils

The sure prophetic word!

No royal pomp adorns

This King of Righteousness;

Meekness and patience, truth and love,

Compose his princely dress.

The Spirit of the Lord,

In rich abundance shed,

On this great prophet gently lights,

And rests upon his head.

Jesus, the light of men!

His doctrine life imparts;

O, may we feel its quickening power

To warm and glad our hearts!

Cheered by its beams, our souls

Shall run the heavenly way;

The path which Christ has marked and trod

Will lead to endless day.
