The Handwriting on the Wall

Words and Music by Knowles Shaw Arr. by Ira D. Sankey

"At the feast of Belshazzar and a thousand of his lords, While they drank from golden
vessels, as the Book of Truth records."




This hymn was written by Knowles Shaw on the experience of King Belshazzar of Babylon. I arranged it to music from a tune written by the author of the words, and frequently sang it as a solo.
