By Request, ‘For Unto Us a Child is Born’

Requested by Joshua, For Unto Us a Child is Born: part of Handel’s Messiah, sung a capella by GLAD.

And the first entry today in our first annual Christmas Carol Contest is For Unto Us a Child Is Born, from G.F. Handel’s Messiah–the words of Isaiah 9:6-7 set to music and performed by the London Symphony Orchestra–requested by our friend, “TheWhiteRabbit.”

By Request, ‘For Unto Us a Child is Born’

“Thewhiterabbit” recommended this: from G.F. Handel’s The Messiah, performed by the London Symphony Orchestra, For Unto Us a Child is Born. The text, of course, is from Isaiah 9:6, “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, Counselor, the Mighty God, the Everlasting Father, the Prince of Peace.”

Come, Lord Jesus, Come!


‘For Unto Us a Child is Born’

This is part of Handel’s Messiah, performed by the London Symphony Orchestra; and for once I can give you the lyrics.

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, Counselor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, the Prince of Peace…      –Isaiah 9:6
