There was no theological precedent
for this, no earthly reason
for God to present His bliss
within the folds of swaddling cloth
When one of valour and of might
was anticipated as bold warrior-slayer,
who would expect a starry night
to bring a babe of lowly birth to be
heaven’s chosen Messiah-King on earth?
An unconventional beginning
to His reign, where weakness
became perfect player for His power
and strength was seen in holy purity,
integrity and inner grit to steel
this humble soul for painful death
prepared by prayerful blood-sweat tears
witnessed within His dying-rising
hour at close of earthly years
