God a Man

When God came to be man Silent was the heavens upon this proclamation Trembling the state of earth, humankind’s dwelling yet on earth came he to be a man When God came to be man He dreamt of the man he would be Not flying from the sky above nor appearing from the earth beneath but in a humble state he came unlike a God When God came to be man A virgin’s womb He chose for an abode then served she the first tabernacle A stable for a house For a bed a manger Thus a God lying in a manger When God came to be man A man was God and God a man ‘tis this gift He gives to humankind So through him humankind became like God When God came to be man A mission not of jollification but of reparation He served A thorn he wore for a crown A life giveth He away for our sins ‘tis this way redeemed we came to be by God
