Eastern star, shining bright,
A newborn babe, love profound,
Angels singing, Heav’nly sound...
Joyful tidings, Heav’n’s good news,
Peace on earth, good will to muse,
Shepherds pond’ring distant star,
Worshipping in fields afar...
Quietly a great event,
Love came down... Heaven-sent,
The greatest gift we’ll ever know,
Cradled in a manger low.
“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, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.”
Isaiah 9:6 KJV
