1 A child is born for us today,
a Son to us is given;
the saviour comes to guide our way
and lead us up to heaven.
They'll call him ''Wonderful',
heavenly 'Counsellor'.
We'll call him 'Jesus'.

2 He comes to be the 'Prince of peace',
to all the world a friend;
his mighty love will never cease,
his kingdom will not end.
They'll call him 'Mighty God,'
'Eternal Father'.
We'll call him 'Jesus'.

3 On those who walk the darkest way
has dawned a shining light
far brighter than the brightest day,
a great and glorious sight.
O come, Emmanuel,
our God, be with us!
O come, Lord Jesus!
