Isaiah 9:2b,6 (NRSV)
We, the people who have walked in darkness, have seen a great light;
those who have lived in a land of deep darkness- on them light has shined.
For a child has been born for us, a son given to us; authority rests upon his shoulders;
and he is named Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
