Candle of Hope

Isaiah 9 New International Version (NIV)

The people walking in darkness     have seen a great light; on those living in the land of deep darkness     a light has dawned. You have enlarged the nation     and increased their joy; they rejoice before you     as people rejoice at the harvest, as warriors rejoice     when dividing the plunder. For as in the day of Midian’s defeat,     you have shattered the yoke that burdens them,     the bar across their shoulders,     the rod of their oppressor. Every warrior’s boot used in battle     and every garment rolled in blood will be destined for burning,     will be fuel for the fire. 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. Of the greatness of his government and peace     there will be no end. He will reign on David’s throne     and over his kingdom, establishing and upholding it     with justice and righteousness     from that time on and forever. The zeal of the Lord Almighty     will accomplish this.
