The Incarnate Son

Seed of woman, long foretold,Babe of heaven, come behold.Mighty God, in manger’s restShepherd King, both did bless.Son of laughter, sacrificed.Spotless Lamb, our ransom’s price.Lord of lords, confess Him now.Prince of peace, before Him bow.Life everlasting, proclaim to all!Jesus Christ, upon Him fall.

The King Has Come

The Creator became a creature. The Potter, a jar of clay. The Infinite, an infant. The Author entered His story. The King left His glory. The Light walked in darkness. Rejoice, for the King has come! Stand firm, for the King will come again!
