To us a child is born...

"The people walking in darkness
have seen a great light;
on those living in the land of the shadow of death
a light has dawned.

You have enlarged the nation
and increased their joy;
they rejoice before you
as people rejoice at the harvest,
as men rejoice
when dividing the plunder.

For as in the day of Midian's defeat,
you have shattered
the yoke that burdens them,
the bar across their shoulders,
the rod of their oppressor.

Every warrior's boot used in battle
and every garment rolled in blood
will be destined for burning,
will be fuel for the fire.

For to us a child is born,
to us a son is given,
and the government will be on his shoulders.
And he will be called
Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God,
Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.

Of the increase of his government and peace
there will be no end.
He will reign on David's throne
and over his kingdom,
establishing and upholding it
with justice and righteousness
from that time on and forever.
The zeal of the LORD Almighty
will accomplish this."

Isaiah 9:2-7

come, fall at His feet. Won't you sing, sing to the King. And go, tell everyone Christ is born. Glory fills the sky as Mary sings a lullaby. Emmanuel is born tonight. Give all that you are, follow the star. And leave all that you have behind. Glory fills the sky as Mary sings a lullaby. Emmanuel is born tonight.

Shepherds come to worship, angels sing Gloria. Wake up the world, the King has come. Joseph smiles at Mary, the baby falls asleep. Wake up the world, the King has come. So let heaven, heaven and nature sing.

There were kings of the orient bringing gifts to the child. Through the fields and desert they came. Messiah was worth every mile. Star of Wonder, Star of Light, Star with royal beauty bright. Westward leading, still proceeding, guide us to thy perfect Light.

please, go download JJ Heller's Christmas CD. It's free on noisetrade. It's called "Wake up the World". :)

I love you.
