Unto Us

Pondering Peace on this second week of Advent

Luke 2:14
“Glory to God in the highest, 
And on earth peace, 
goodwill toward men!”

May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him,
 so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.

The God of peace be with you all. Amen.

For unto us a Child is born,
Unto us a Son is given;
And the government will be upon His shoulder.
And His name will be called
Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God,
Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
 Of the increase of His government and peace
There will be no end,

He Who Is Mighty


Unto us, so undeserving
Unto vile humanity 
God, with love and grace unswerving
Planned our peace, through Calvary

Unto us, like lost sheep wand'ring
Unto us, the angel's King
God did not withhold the offering
That would cost Him everything

Everything, for our redemption
For the sinner's sacrifice
God, for the sake of salvation
Gave His Son to pay the price 

Crushing Lucifer, so cunning
With love's plan for sin's defeat
Unto us, God's purpose, stunning
Evil's curse with mercy sweet 

Unto us, the awesome promise
Of his government's increase
Heaven came to earth through Jesus 
Unto us, the Prince of Peace

Then, from whence come wars and fighting?
Whence the lust that lures the eye?
Doth it not come from delighting
In what cannot satisfy?

Unto us a Son is given
Unto us a Child is born
Unto us, the hope of Heaven
Jesus, Star of endless Morn

Unto us, peace through God's pardon
Unto us peace to transcend
The battle of Armageddon 
Unto us, love without end

Purchased and secured, God's favor
Perfects faith and truth's amen 
Unto us, God's peace forever
As we fully trust in Him

Come, let us reason together
For shared mercies grace imparts
Let us dwell in peace, and ever
Worship God with thankful heart
