The Hebrew Scriptures show us many signs

Moses and Elijah saw the Lord’s designs

Moses spoke to God as if face to face

Elijah spoke words of judgment and grace

All true prophets longed for that day

There will be a new Exodus, they say

Crucified on the cross and laid in a tomb

Jesus defeated sin and its misery and gloom

Then on the third day, the pattern foretold,

Jesus would come forth ever so bold

As much as stories of Moses and Elijah amaze

And as much as they point to Jesus in an elaborate maze

Jesus is the fulfillment of Scripture’s signs

And His work is the climax of God’s designs!
