Stoop down low 

Bowed beneath 

The mantel 

Humble heart 

Eyes up

Expectant 

Celestial scene 

Somehow 

Here

Amongst us 

For you 

And me 

Here below 

A birth

For your rebirth 

(And mine) 

A child in the manger 

As a tomb 

Wrapped 

Linen bright 

As a sign 

Now 

As a sign then 

Of death overcoming 

Come down low

That

You might be brought 

 Up into life 

This child

Given 

That 

You 

Might

Live

*

Here

Is

The moment

Of

Your

Birth

(John 1:12 “But to all who did receive him (Jesus), who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God.”)
