“Look! The virgin will conceive a child! She will give birth to a son, and they will call him Immanuel, which means ‘God is with us.’ ” (Matthew 1:23, NLT)


Immanuel, the With of God

Incarnate Love on carnal sod.

Set aside Thy lofty crown

Knees of God kneeling down.

Spirit feet shod with flesh

Earth prints of celestial steps.

Fullness of the Deity

Draping God that man might see.

Volume of Thy silent voice

The Word made flesh-O, Blessed Choice!

What is man that Thou wouldst come

Wrapped as we, that we’d be one?

Wake, O Sleeper! Tongue must tell!

It’s God with us!
