God in Embryo


God in embryo,
the Universal God
in the womb will grow
as our dear flesh and blood.

New-born baby boy,
Maker of every plan,
new life now deploys,
Human God – Divine Man.

Jesus frees and heals,
compassion is God’s mark;
all our cares he feels,
and lightens up our dark.

God now fixed on Cross,
his glory hid from view,
gains flow from his loss:
new life has come to you.

Tiny speck in womb,
and soon the Cosmic Lord:
Universe makes room –
Today we’re born with God.
