A Poem for Christmas

christmas-934177_1920I started writing this many years ago. After running across it recently, I decided to brush it up for Christmas. I suppose one might question whether it actually qualifies as a “poem” – but I’m not sure what else to call it! And of course it’s not only about Christmas, per se – it’s about the Incarnation, which involves much more than the actual birth of Jesus. So a more accurate title for this post might be, “Something About the Incarnation,” but that doesn’t have the same ring at all!

Immanuel

Babe crying
Star shining
Voice calling
Wine flowing
Boat rocking
Storm raging
Man walking
Sea calming
Sick healing
Limbs mending
Ears hearing
Eyes seeing
Palms waving
Bread breaking
Coins clinking
Crowd scorning
Nails pounding
Blood pouring
Love hanging
Death dying
Veil tearing
Earth shaking
Light flaring
Son rising
Word running
Chains falling
King reigning
Praise soaring

Holy, Holy, Holy
Hallelujah
