Original text and translations
Unto us a child is born, unto us a son is giv'n, and the government shall be upon his shoulders.
And his name shall be called Wonderful, Counselor, the mighty God, the everlasting Father, the Prince of Peace.
Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end.
Upon the throne of David and upon his kingdom to order it and to establish it, with judgment and justice from henceforth even forever.
The zeal of the Lord of Hosts will perform this.
