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.
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.
