For Unto us a Child is Born

This isn’t really a Christmas song, but the sheer breathtaking magnificence of it, and that it is about Jesus, the Child from Heaven, means that I really must share it with you today. And someone’s shared it on YouTube too, so I will embed the track from there:

For Unto us a Child is born, unto us a son is given
And the government shall be upon his shoulders.
For Unto us a Child is born, unto us a son is given
And the government shall be upon his shoulders.

And He will be called Wonderful, Wonderful Counsellor,
Mighty God
The Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace,
Mighty God

And there shall be no end to the increase of His rule
To the increase of his government and peace
For he shall sit on David’s throne, upholding righteousness
Our God shall accomplish this


For He is the mighty God, He is the Prince of Peace,
The King of Kings and Lord of Lords
All honour to the King, all glory to His name,
For now and evermore!


Be blessed this Christmas morning. Jesus is the greatest Gift ever given in all of history, the Gift that all our earthly Christmas gifts symbolise.

God offers you the Gift of eternal life in Jesus, beginning right now, if you will just simply receive the Gift.

Unwrap. Open the Box. Enjoy!

The song is also on the ‘Enter His Gates‘ collection on my website Vintage Worship Tapes. Click one of the red links above, or the logo below, to go to the site:

  1. For many Christmases past I have been doing a fast, rocky version of “For unto us”, very different to this version, but it always goes down well!”

  2. So blessed to hear ‘For unto us a Child is born’ by Dave J Hadden! You can’t imagine how much I’ve searched for it. Thanks, God bless!
