Unto us a Child is Born Lyrics
For unto us a Child is born,
To us a Son is giv'n;
The government shall rest on Him,
Th' anointed One from Heav'n.
His name is Wonderful Counselor,
The Mighty God is He,
The Everlasting Father,
The humble Prince of Peace.
The increase of His government
And peace shall never end;
He'll reign on David's ancient throne
As ruler of all men.
Upheld with justice and righteousness,
Forever His kingdom will last;
The zeal of the Lord God Most High
Will bring these things to pass.
Lord Jesus, come now and reign in me,
Be Lord of my life this hour.
Come be my Counselor and my God,
My source of wisdom and power.
Watch o'er me with Your Father care,
My heart and my mind, fill with peace.
I worship You, my Lord and King,
My praise will never cease.
