about

A new Advent/Christmas song based in a hymn written by John Morrison in 1781 that meditates on the familiar passage from Isaiah 9. This biblical text and the hymn that John wrote bears the weight of our prayers in this season. We hope it blesses you. Email us for the song chart.

Words: John Morison, 1781, adapted and additional, Bruce Benedict, 2015, 2018.
Music: Bruce Benedict, 2018

lyrics

V1
The people who in darkness walked
have seen a glorious light;
the heavenly dawn broke forth on those
who dwelt in death and night,

V2
To greet you, Sun of Righteousness,
the gathering nations come,
rejoicing as when reapers bring
their harvest treasures home,

CHORUS:
To us the promised child is born, to us a son is given;
and on his shoulders ever rests all power in earth and heaven,

V3
His peace and righteous government
shall over all extend;
on judgment and on justice based,
his reign shall never end.

Bridge:
His name shall be the Prince of Peace
forevermore adored,
the Wonderful, the Counselor,
the Great and Mighty Lord
