Here, as promised is a preview of our first ever music video (film cred: @mockthehead) - to see the full thing (instagram only allows 60 sec clips) head over to the youtube link: http://bit.ly/PilgrimProjectAlleluia For "Alleluia, Unto Us a Son is Given" we took lyrics written in 1781 by John Morrison using Isaiah 9, added the chorus and gave the song a new melody. It's a beautiful message about the hope we celebrate during advent and we hope you'll find it to be an encouragement this Christmas. This song will be available on our second album "Strength & Stay" to be released in 2018. Enjoy!
Alleluia! Unto Us a Son is Given
The race that long in darkness pined,
Have seen a glorious Light;
The people dwell in day, who dwelt
In death's surrounding night. To hail Thy rise, Thou better Sun,
The gathering nations come,
Joyous as when the reapers bear
The harvest treasures home.
Alleluia! Unto us a son is given
Alleluia! To us a son is born
Alleluia! Our Wonderful Counselor
Alleluia! Great and almighty God
To us a Child of Hope is born,
To us a Son is given,
Him shall the tribes of earth obey,
Him all the hosts of heaven. His power increasing still shall spread,
His reign no end shall know:
Justice shall guard His throne above,
And peace abound below.
Words: John Morrison (1746-1798) and Jonathan Byrne (2015)
