“For Unto Us A Child Is Born…”

The wonder and glory of the birth of Jesus resound as Isaiah’s words are sung in this chorus from Handel’s Messiah.

For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.
Isaiah 9:6
