‘For Unto Us a Child Is Born’

Christmas is coming! And we have this hymn by special request from TheWhiteRabbit: Unto Us a Child Is Born–by the London Symphony Orchestra, no less. Text from the Bible, Isaiah 9:6. Music by Handel, from The Messiah.

Don’t forget, the Christmas carol contest starts the day after tomorrow.

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

And the first entry in our Christmas carol contest is by TheWhiteRabbit: For Unto Us a Child is Born, from Handel’s Messiah, performed by the London Symphony Orchestra. And you know this Bible verse, here set to music: Isaiah 9:6.

‘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
