  • Call to Worship: Psalm 8:1-2, 9 (NIV)

         Lord, our Lord,
                  how majestic is your name in all the earth!

             You have set your glory
                in the heavens.
         Through the praise of children and infants
                  you have established a stronghold against your enemies,
                  to silence the foe and the avenger.

         Lord, our Lord,
                  how majestic is your name in all the earth!

    Scripture Reading: Isaiah 9:1-7 (ESV)

    But there will be no gloom for her who was in anguish. In the former time he brought into contempt the land of Zebulun and the land of Naphtali, but in the latter time he has made glorious the way of the sea, the land beyond the Jordan, Galilee of the nations.

          The people who walked in darkness
                  have seen a great light;
             those who dwelt in a land of deep darkness,
                  on them has light shone.
         You have multiplied the nation;
                  you have increased its joy;
             they rejoice before you
                  as with joy at the harvest,
                 as they are glad when they divide the spoil.
         For the yoke of his burden,
                  and the staff for his shoulder,
                 the rod of his oppressor,
                 you have broken as on the day of Midian.
         For every boot of the tramping warrior in battle tumult
                 and every garment rolled in blood
                 will be burned as fuel for the fire.
         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.
             The zeal of the Lord of hosts will do this.
