2. Nations, that long in darkness walked,
Have now beheld a glorious light;
On them, who dwelt in shades of death,
The light hath shined heavenly bright.
6. For lo! the Virgin's child is born,
To us the Son of God is given;
Upon his shoulders shall be laid
The government of earth, and heaven;

His name is called Wonderful,
The Counselor, the mighty God,
Eternal Father, Prince of Peace:
Peace dearly purchased 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.

A New Version of the Psalms of David, 1752
