O Come Let Us Adore Him

Adoration of the Magi, by Jacques Stella (1596-1657)

The people who walked in darkness have seen a great light;

upon those who have dwelt in the land of gloom a light has shown.

You have brought them abundant joy and great rejoicing…

For a child is born to us, a son is given to us;

upon his shoulder dominion rests.

They name him Wonder-Counselor, God-Hero,

Father-Forever, Prince of Peace.

His dominion is vast and forever peaceful.

                                                                            Isaiah 9:1-6
