Hymn 2:135 [Behold The Woman’s Promis’d Seed!] by Isaac Watts

Types and prophecies of Christ.

Behold the woman’s promis’d seed!
Behold the great Messiah come!
Behold the prophets all agreed
To give him the superior room!

Abrah’m the saint rejoic’d of old
When visions of the Lord he saw;
Moses the man of God foretold
This great fulfiller of his law.

The types bore witness to his Name,
Obtain’d their chief design, and ceas’d;
The incense and the bleeding lamb,
The ark, the altar, and the priest.

Predictions in abundance meet
To join their blessings on his head;
Jesus, we worship at thy feet,
And nations own the promis’d seed.
