Long had the voice of prophecy foretold
Messiah‘s advent: “Unto us is born
A son, a child to us is given. On him
Shall be the rule of nations: and his name
Shall be, the Wonderful, the Counselor,
The mighty God, the everlasting Sire,
The Prince of Peace. His government and peace
Shall still increase for ever. He shall sit
On David’s throne, and kingdom evermore.
With judgment and with justice, he shall sway
His righteous scepter: all shall he order,
All establish firm. I, the Lord, have said,
And will perform my word.”
