The people who walk in the dark,
Will be seeing a light so bright;
That no matter where they embark,
It shall be blinding to their sight.
The light will shine on those who live,
In the land of shadows of death;
As a means that helps to forgive,
Before breathing of your breath.
He will amplify the kingdom,
As He increases happiness;
Using His spiritual wisdom,
Able to spread His blessedness.
Happiness comes in your presence,
Like celebrating the harvest;
The feeling after repentance,
Or you have completed your quest.
He will break the yoke of burdens,
The bar that bonds on their shoulders;
All of the worries and concerns,
Weighting them down like boulders.
Every boot of a soldier,
Are marching to the sound of war;
Every garment to wager,
To the one with the highest score.
Blood filled garments burned in the fire,
Which is being burned for the fuel;
Allowing for a desire,
From the coldness which has been cruel.
For a child that has been born,
Unto us a son is given;
Living among us to sojourn,
Whose home will be up in Heaven.
The government will rest on Him,
Prince of Peace as He will proclaim;
Mighty God never feeling grim,
Eternal Father as His name.
His peace of unlimited growth,
The throne of David and kingdom;
He will uphold taking an oath,
As Lord with justice and wisdom.
