Old Testament Advent Poems No. 8

Hallelujah – Isaiah 9: 6&7

The next  O.T. Advent poem comes straight from Scripture. As a piece of poetry it is untouchable. As gospel, it is beyond price.

For to us a child is born,
to us a son is given,
and the government will be on his shoulders.
And he will be called
Wonderful Counsellor, Mighty God,
Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
 Of the greatness of his government and peaceXmas '[pems
there will be no end.
He will reign on David’s throne
and over his kingdom,
establishing and upholding it
with justice and righteousness
from that time on and forever.
The zeal of the Lord Almighty
will accomplish this.

  1. It is amazing poetry. We can lose sight of that, because it has become familiar. Thank you.

    • You are right. We sometimes lose sight of the fact that Scripture is full of amazing poetry. There are more poems than just the Psalms. Mary’s song in Luke 1 is another, wonderful, example.

  2. Beautiful!
