Nations that longed in the darkness walked
Nations that long in darkness walked
Have now beheld a glorious light;
On them who dwelt in shades of
The light hath shinèd heav’nly bright.
For lo! the virgin’s Child is born;
To us the Son of God is
Upon His shoulders shall be laid
The government of earth and Heav’n.
His Name is callèd
The Counselor, the mighty God,
Eternal Father, Prince of Peace,
Peace dearly purchased with His blood.
His government shall know no bounds,
But far and wide o’er all extend;
And happy peace, the glorious fruits
Of His just reign, shall know no
O’er David’s kingdom, on His throne
To rule, and ’stablish it secure
With judgment clear, and justice
His reign forever shall endure.
