Title: Stick of Joseph, Stick of Judah
Meter: 8 7 8 7 D
Topic: the Bible, the Book of Mormon, scripture
In Eden, then in Canaan’s land,
Then in Israel was heard.
The voice of God, both still and grand,
Prophets wrote His holy word.
The Stick of Judah lent its voice,
Witnessing of Christ to come,
And making all who read rejoice
It was the part, but not the sum.
First in a stable as a child,
On the shores of Galilee,
Some heard Christ’s words, pure, undefiled,
Many wrote what they did see.
The Stick of Judah grew again
Witnessing the Christ who came.
How once our Savior dwelt with men,
And cleansed mankind of sin and blame.
In wilderness and on the sea,
And then in the Promised Land.
Both Nephi and his seed were free,
And did God’s grace understand.
The Stick of Joseph then sprang up,
Witnessing of Christ as well,
Of him who drained the bitter cup,
Who redeemed their souls from hell.
The Stick of Judah is one voice,
The Stick of Joseph unites
Its witness, and gives us the choice,
Of heeding both these two lights.
Two witness of Christ who lives,
Who came and will soon again,
Until that time, His words He gives,
None may know the hour when.
