O Morning Star! Splendor of Eternal Light and Sun of Justice!
Come, and illumine those who dwell in darkness and the shadow of death!
“The people that walked in darkness, have seen a great light: to them that dwelt in the region of the shadow of death, light is risen… For a CHILD IS BORN to us, and a Son is given to us, and the government is upon His shoulder: and His name shall be called, Wonderful, Counsellor, God the Mighty, the Father of the world to come, the Prince of Peace. His empire shall be multiplied, and there shall be no end of peace: He shall sit upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom; to establish it and strengthen it with judgment and with justice, from henceforth and for ever: the zeal of the Lord of Hosts will perform this.”
– the Book of Isaiah 9:2, 6-7
