The wonder and glory of the birth of Jesus resound as the words of Isaiah 9:6 are sung in this chorus from Handel’s Messiah.
“For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.”
