The people who in darkness walked
have seen a glorious light;
the heavenly dawn broke forth on those
who dwelt in death and night,
To greet you, Sun of Righteousness,
the gathering nations come,
rejoicing as when reapers bring
their harvest treasures home,
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,
His peace and righteous government
shall over all extend;
on judgment and on justice based,
his reign shall never end.
His name shall be the Prince of Peace
the Wonderful, the Counselor,
the Great and Mighty Lord
supported by 5 fans who also own “His Name Shall Be”
WK’s best album so far! Each song is powerfully written and orchestrated, with performances masterfully reinforcing lyric themes. There is a strong sense of progression: alternating between lamentation and hope, despair and comfort, injustice and vindication, steadily building from curse to inauguration to consummation. The album reaches its climax in proclaiming that God is making all things new--followed by a final denouement and assurance of the goodness of the Lord as we await His appearing. Greg Tappert
