Wonderful Counsellor

By Andy Irons | Added 2nd November 2010
Bible Passages: Isa 9:6; Isa 7:14; Matt 1:23

This song is based on one of the most well known Christmas bible readings, where Isaiah prophesies the coming of Jesus. It's a simple 3-part harmony, with each part layering on top of the last building to a crescendo of praise. Lyrically also, each part builds on the previous one, bringing our focus in more and more onto Jesus. I hope you will find this a valuable addition to your personal and gathered worship, both at Christmas and throughout the year.

Wonderful
Counsellor,
Mighty God,
Prince of Peace.

Awesome and wonderful,
Jesus our Counsellor,
you are Almighty God,
Prince of Peace.

Jesus Christ,
God with us,
Immanuel,
Prince of Peace.

Short and simple words, but a great, great melody. My ladies from my female-choir loved to sing the song since the first time they heard it. Please go on with more songs. :-))
Lots of Love.

Where do we have to register where we use this? I thought I saw something in the terms and conditions if you use the free chords you just have to register use?

We used this song for our Christmas Cantata this year. I played keyboards (piano/strings combo). We utilized vocalist from our band and had the choir join in while walking in from the back of our sanctuary. Moved folks to tears...keyboard player included. Thanks for this wonderful resource.

This is a lovely simple but powerful song. Our choir is singing it at our carol service this coming Sunday and we're looking forward to sharing it with the rest of the church.

Our youth choir sang this for Lessons and Carols this year. They love singing solos, so each one of them took a turn at the microphone, singing a part 3X, before another singer rotated in. When they finished, the sopranos, altos, and baritones came in as groups. They sang it one time through, a cappella, the rhythm section came back in, and they sang it home. My husband said, "You didn't tell me I was going to need kleenex for the first song." We love this piece.

We did this last Christmas with some teens/young adults from our congregation, but moved the tenor part down since I had a bass. Then two altos on the melody and one soprano on countermelody. We enjoyed it and the congregation enjoyed the song and our young folks.

This song has been an easy way to encourage our non-music reading choir to sing in parts. A lovely, worshipful song.

This is so simple and powerful. Really easy for any congregation to pickup, and makes you imagine angels singing!
