have seen a great light;
on those living in the land of deep darkness
a light has dawned.
and increased their joy;
they rejoice before you
as people rejoice at the harvest,
as warriors rejoice
when dividing the plunder.
you have shattered
the yoke that burdens them,
the bar across their shoulders,
the rod of their oppressor.
and every garment rolled in blood
will be destined for burning,
will be fuel for the fire.
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.
