Amazing Counselor! The Mighty God!
The people who walked in darkness
have seen a great light.
For those who lived in a land of deep shadows -
light! sunbursts of light!
For a child has been born - for us!
the gift of a son - for us!
He'll take over
the running of the world.
His names will be: Amazing Counselor,
Prince of Wholeness.
His ruling authority will grow,
and there'll be no limits to the wholeness he brings.
He'll rule from the historic David throne
over that promised kingdom.
He'll put that kingdom on a firm footing
and keep it going
With fair dealing and right living,
beginning now and lasting always.
The zeal of God-of-the-Angel-Armies
will do all this.
Isaiah 9:2; 6-7 The Message
