Words: Isaac Watts Music: "Ernan" by Lowell Mason Alternate tune: "Duke Street" attributed to John Hatton The lands that long in darkness lay Now have beheld a heav'nly light; Nations that sat in death's cold shade Are blessed with beams divinely bright. The virgin's promised Son is born, Behold th'expected Child appear: What shall His names or titles be? "The Wonderful, the Counsellor." This infant is the mighty God, Come to be suckled and adored; Th'eternal Father, Prince of Peace, The Son of David, and his Lord. The government of earth and seas Upon His shoulders shall be laid; His wide dominions still increase, And honors to His Name be paid. Jesus, the holy Child, shall sit High on His father David's throne; Shall crush His foes beneath His feet, And reign to ages yet unknown.
