Is.IX. Nations, that long in Darkness walk'd

2. Nations, that long in Darkness walk'd,.
Have now beheld a glorious Light;
On them, who dwelt in Shades of Death,
The Light hath shined heav'nly bright.
6. For lo! the Virgin's Child is born,
To us the Son of God is giv'n;
Upon his Shoulders shall be lay'd
The Government of Earth, and Heav'n;

His Name is called Wonderfull,
The Counsellour, the mighty God,
Eternal Father, Prince of Peace:
Peace dearly purchas'd with his Blood.
7. His Government shall know no Bounds,
But far and wide, o'er all extend;
And happy Peace, the glorious Fruits
Of his just Reign, shall know no End.

O'er David's Kingdom, on his Throne,
To rule, and stablish it secure;
With Judgment clear, and Justice right,
His Reign forever shall endure.
