For Unto Us a Child is Born

on December 19, 2012

Today’s link with Exceptionalistic for the 12 Days of Christmas was a no-brainer, and that’s a good thing because with our life around here the last 3 1/2 weeks that’s how much I have to spare! (Fortunately our God works through our weaknesses and infirmities; He uses the foolish and weak things to confound and shame the wise and strong.)  My favorite Christmas Scripture is tied in with the best Christmas song ever– “For unto us a Child is born”, from Handel’s Messiah. I love listening to it; I love singing it; I love playing it. If you’ve never been a fan of Baroque music, give it a listen. Handel weaves the separate vocal lines together so brilliantly, and when they all come together for “WONDERFUL COUNSELOR” it’s just amazing!

For to us a child is born, to us a son is given;
and the government shall be upon his shoulder,
and his name shall be called Wonderful Counselor,
Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
Isaiah 9:6

    I love that verse also! It was the first verse my daughter memorized. Have you seen the Young Messiah concert— it goes back at least 15 years- maybe 20. I love the way it was sung in the live concert!!! That and My Redeemer Lives make that a favorite video of mine. Gotta go! Green tree awaits Lol!! D

  2. Love the music – such praise for our “Wonderful Counselor”!
