For unto us a child is born. . . .

These words were written 700 years before the birth of the Christ child --

"[H]e shall make it glorious . . . Galilee. . . . 

The people who walk in darkness will see a great light.

Those who live in a dark land, the light will shine on them.

You will multiply the nation.  You will increase their gladness.

They will be glad in Your presence as with the gladness of harvest. . . .

for unto us a child will be born, a son will be given to us.

And the government will rest on His shoulders,

and His name will be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God,

Eternal Father, Prince of Peace." Isaiah 9:2-7.
