It was for me.
This child born,
This dear Son given,
Immanuel called.

It was for me.
The Counselor,
The King,
The Mighty God came.

It was for me.
The Eternal Father,
The Prince, my peace,
The prophecy filled.

It was for me.
Wondrous He’s called,
The kingdom placed
On worthy shoulders held.

Forever saints and angels sing
And forever glories told,
It was for me
The humble Savior came.

For to us a child is born,
   to us a son is given;
and the government shall be upon his shoulder,
   and His name shall be called
Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God,
   Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
Of the increase of his government and of peace
   there will be no end,
on the throne of David and over his kingdom,
   to establish it and to uphold it
with justice and with righteousness
   from this time forth and forevermore (Is 9:6-7).
