The lands that long in darkness lay
Now have beheld a heav’nly light;
Nations that sat in death’s cold shade
Are bless’d with beams divinely bright.

The Virgin’s promised Son is born,
Behold th’expected child appear;
What shall his names or titles be?
The Wonderful, the Counselor.

This infant is the mighty God,
Come to be suckled and adored;
Th’eternal Father, Prince of Peace,
The Son of David, and his Lord.
