Traditional Song (The Birth of Christ)


           Often during the Christmas season, Scriptures are looked at which apply to the birth of Jesus Christ.

            Whenever an Eastern prince is born, the musicians of the court are informed and they sing this traditional song: Unto King Micah a child is born; Unto King Micah a son is given!

            We find the same type of song recorded in Isaiah 9:6; the difference is that this is the prophecy of the coming of Christ, therefore the words read: "For unto us a child is born; unto us a son is given:"

            Ordinarily, the name of the father is inserted in that space. The servants of Brahmin priests go about making the official announcement about the royal heir in
India, so that the whole country may rejoice and sing praises to the new arrival. But God Himself announced the birth of Jesus through the shepherds and the heavenly hosts gave praises.
