“A child shall be born,” Isaiah wrote,

“The wonderful…Prince of Peace…

The mighty God, our counselor… (*)

Whose kingdom shall never cease.”



Jeremiah too, prophetically

Predicted the king’s success

Saying that righteousness would increase

Through our Lord, our righteousness. (**)



So many years ago they wrote

These prophesies that we know

Were all fulfilled at Jesus birth

Some two thousand years ago.



And still today the magic lasts.

It cannot be denied

Though there are many additives

The centuries have supplied.



Come, take a trip, a Christian church

Hear the message, yes it is true

Even the gifts that the Magi brought

We give and receive ever new.



(*)  Isaiah 9

(**) Jeremiah 23:6



Sam Cox 11.07.03
