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.
