The people who in darkness walked
have seen a glorious light;
the heavenly dawn broke forth on those
who dwelt in death and night,
who dwelt in death and night.
2 To greet you, Sun of Righteousness,
the gathering nations come,
rejoicing as when reapers bring
their harvest treasures home,
their harvest treasures home.
3 To us the promised child is born,
to us a son is given;
and on his shoulders ever rests
all power in earth and heaven,
all power in earth and heaven.
4 His name shall be the Prince of Peace
the Wonderful, the Counselor,
the Mighty God and Lord,
the Mighty God and Lord.
5 His peace and righteous government
shall over all extend;
on judgment and on justice based,
his reign shall never end,
his reign shall never end.
