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, Counselor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.

Isaiah 9:6

O blessed Holy, divine gift of all

gifts royal child in a manger born.

Light of the world, Savior, King

of Kings, Lord of Lords, precious

redeemer to all who will but

believe. Wonderful, Counselor,

mighty God, everlasting Father,

Prince of Peace, what gift can we

give to our Creator who knit us all

together in our mother’s wombs, who

gives us life, breath, salvation, and Christ-given

glorious gifts of ceaseless innumerable blessings?

You are our gift, eternal spring, fortress,

sustainer, Emmanuel in the valley and on

the mountaintop. It is to you we bring our

paltry gifts and offerings. It is to you our

Savior, our beloved, our joy, our hope, our

King, we humbly bow and give to you,

our Messiah and coming King, everything.
