mary and jesus

Let us weigh wisely, let us wonder at
Wonders accomplished,
Nothing more wondrous than this world ever
will men’s lips tell of,
God coming to us, he that created
All of creation,
As God and as man, and God as man,
Equally gifted.
Tremendous, tiny, powerful, feeble,
Cheeks fair of color,
Wealthy and needy, Father and Brother,
Maker of brothers,
This, surely, is Jesus, whom we should welcome
As Lord of rulers,
Lofty and lowly, Emmanuel,
Honey to think on.
An ox and an ass, the Lord of this world,
A manger is his,
Bundle of hay instead of a cradle
For our Lord of hosts.
