How the Greatest Story in the World Applies to You This Christmas | Matthew West

Matthew West’s original Christmas song “Unto Us” was inspired by this verse in Isaiah. Watch him perform the song live and talk about the story behind it.

“For a child is born to us,
a son is given to us.
The government will rest on his shoulders.
And he will be called:
Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God,
Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.”
(Isaiah 9:6 NLT)

Matthew says, “I love that this scripture doesn’t just tell us that a child is born. It doesn’t just tell us that a son is given. It says us who this gift is for. It isn’t just for one individual. It’s plural – US. All of us! So, with “Unto Us,” I just wanted to write a song of celebration that my church could sing…”

He talks more about writing the verses and the inspiration behind the song in this video below.
