So far away and long ago,
A promise made through prophets old,
A virgin shall conceive a Son, "Wonderful."
His name shall be called "Wonderful,
The Counselor, the Mighty God,
The Prince of Peace, Emmanuel, God With Us."
The prophets, the promise,
the hope, the story of old;
The angels, the shepherds, the wisemen, the manger cold.
In Bethlehem, a Child is born,
A mother smiles, a Baby warm;
The Prince of Peace, Emmanuel, God with us.
(Final ending: The Prince of Peace is He, our Lord, Emmanuel).
Whoever heard of such a thing,
A virgin girl would birth a King,
Jehovah God was He, eternal mystery.
The shepherds came, and worshiped Him,
The Magi, too, their gifts to bring,
The angels sang their praise,
All heaven's hands were raised.
