A Child is Born

So I decided to do my sonnet on the passage, Isaiah 9:6-7 

Isaiah 9:6-7 For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.
 Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end upon the throne of David and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even for ever. The zeal of the Lord of hosts will perform this.
For Unto Us a Child is Born, by Simon Dewey 

And here’s the sonnet.

A Child is Born

For to us on this day, a child is born,
A child so beautiful and full of grace.
He is given to us, and he has sworn
To save not just us, but the human race.
Wonderful, Counselor, The Prince of Peace,
The Endless Father, and The Mighty God.
We shall call him these names and never cease,
To worship the ground where he has yet trod.
On his shoulders the government shall rest.
The growth of his rule and peace shall not end,
For the throne of David will be the best,
To create the kingdom that we may tend.
        The judgment and justice of God above
        Shall come through this child with an endless love.
