Mystery of Christmas

A tender touch, a warm embrace

The look of love upon her face

A tiny Baby, God incarnate

On her lap does rest upon it

A mystery, complex, rich, warm

That God, the unchanging, would change His form.

All the power in the world restrained

By His choice, with one voice, all the angels proclaimed.

Grace in the flesh has come down to the earth,

Bringing chaos and peace through Messiah’s birth.

Allison is an aspiring author, and a lover of words, music, and the Lord Jesus Christ. She is also abysmal at these “about you” things, being unable to think of quirky characteristics at the drop of a hat. However, she enjoys singing randomly and loudly, and laughing hysterically while being caught in the rain.

    Grace in the flesh– that one line alone would be a tribute to Christmas-the poem all together is even better. “That God, the unchanging, would change His form.”
    Merry Christmas!
