A continuing celebration from Handel’s Messiah…For Unto Us a Son is Born Isaiah 9:6
Isaiah 9:6 has been our advent verse at church. What great words: Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
And just think….it was for US. For US a child was born. For US a son was given.
For to us a child is born,
to us a son is given,
and the government will be on his shoulders.
And he will be called
Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God,
Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
At the end of his manuscript, Handel wrote the letters “SDG”—Soli Deo Gloria, “To God alone the glory.”
