for unto us a child is born unto us a son is given unto us a son is given and the government shall be upon his shoulder and the government shall be upon his shoulder and the government shall be upon his shoulder and his name shall be called wonderful counselor the mighty God the everlasting father the prince of peace the everlasting father the prince of peace
2.
I heard the bells on Christmas day their old familiar carols play and wild and sweet the words repeat of peace on earth good will to men I thought how as the day had come the belfries of all Christendom had rolled along the unbroken song of peace on earth good will to men and in despair I bowed my head there is no peace on earth I said for hate is strong and mocks the song of peace on earth good will to men all will be well all will be well all manner of things will be well then pealed the bells more loud and deep God is not dead nor doth he sleep the wrong shall fail the right prevail with peace on earth good will to men
3.
Isaiah 35 04:52
even the wilderness and desert will be glad in those days the wasteland will rejoice and blossom with spring crocuses yes there will be an abundance of flowers and singing for joy the deserts will become as green as the mountains of Lebanon as lovely as Mount Carmel or the plain of Sharon there the Lord will display his glory the splendor of God with this news strengthen those who have tired hands and encourage those who have weak knees say to those with fearful hearts be strong and do not fear your God is coming he is coming to save you
4.
Love Is Fear 11:37
where is peace when's this end filling spaces with answers to defend on and on and I can't recall something's missing (where is peace) something's missing (when's this end) questions in twine but why but why some love overcomes some is fear those real enough and those we make up some love opens up some just kills those under us we cover up some love overcomes overcomes when'd you leave alone in bed you promised love in the shallow and deep end but then I can't see far are you listening (when'd you leave) are you listening (alone in bed) answers entwined but why but why
5.
seen and unseen if there is nothing in between I'm lost I'm nonplussed surface leaves me nervous wheels swerving lines blurring on the bridge I cross same one I dream of jumping off patiently to eternity answers hardly qualify new life you sting my eyes now swing with both arms I need you with all that I can still it's not over still I'm no older the bullets go everywhere else you are the fumes that burn the whole house down if everything is meaningless illusions of exposure leaves erosion of the soil I'm turning over turning over run my will over and over
6.
o come o come Emmanuel and ransom captive Israel that mourns in lonely exile here until the son of God appear rejoice rejoice Emmanuel shall come to thee o Israel o come thou wisdom from on high embracing all things far and neigh in strength and beauty come and stay teach us your will and guide your way rejoice rejoice Emmanuel shall come to thee o Israel o come o come thou Lord of might as to your tribes on Sinai’s height in ancient times you gave the law in cloud and majesty and awe rejoice rejoice Emmanuel shall come to thee o Israel

about

Live recording from December 4th, 2010 performance at Immanuel Lutheran in Seattle, USA. Among them: a favorite that has eluded proper recording, "I Heard The Bells"; a classic carol we haven't yet tired of, riding on Radiohead's "There There" beat; and another adaptation from Handel's "Messiah".
