A reading from the book of the prophet Isaiah 9:1-2, 5-6

The people who walked in darkness have seen a great light; Upon those who dwelt in the land of gloom a light has shone.You have brought them abundant joy and great rejoicing, As they rejoice before you as at the harvest, as men make merry when dividing spoils.For a child is born to us, a son is given us; upon his shoulder dominion rests.They name him Wonder-Counselor, God-Hero, Father-Forever, Prince of Peace.His dominion is vast and forever peaceful, From David's throne, and over his kingdom, which he confirms and sustainsBy judgment and justice, both now and forever.

The Word of the Lord
