And His Name Shall Be Called Wonderful

 
Lyrics & Information
LyricsAbout the song…
Unto us on this holy night
Unto us beneath a new star’s light
Unto us where the lambs have fed
Gently laid in a manger bed
Unto us a child is born
Unto us a son is given

Chorus:
And his name shall be called Wonderful
For the world will be healed by his power
He will be our unfailing Counselor
In each uncertain hour
The Mighty God of heaven above
So meekly comes to earth
The Everlasting Father
This child of lowly birth
Tell his name, sing his praise in all the world
Till all the world believes
Till every voice is lifted up
To praise the Prince of Peace

Unto us ‘mid the angel song
Unto us, the gift awaited long
Unto us wrapped in swaddling bands
Hushed to sleep at the Virgin’s hands
Unto us a child is born
Unto us a son is given

(Repeat chorus)

“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

This song weaves Isaiah’s well-loved verse into a modern lyric, keeping the verse intact and in order, though omitting “and the government shall be upon his shoulder.” I figured only Handel can do justice to that phrase. My apologies… “called” is only one syllable in this selection–I’m sure many a choir member will try to make it two. :)
