Behold a Star from Jacob Shining

Behold a star from Jacob shining, and a scepter from Israel rising, to reign in glory over the nations. Like some bright morning star is he, the promise of the coming day, beyond the night of sorrow. Break forth, O light! We, our joyful hearts uplifting with thanksgiving, hail the brightness of thy rising.

–Music: Felix Mendelssohn-Bartholdy (1809-1847)
–Words: arr. by Henry Wilder Foote, after Numbers 24:17
