Grace of God

Before creation, Christ the Logos, the Word
Was God in form, all ruler, truth and right:
But in being God, did not so much delight
That Christ became a human, love preferred,
Whose holy words through the ages would be heard,
Whose human touch would offer hope and sight
And love and care relieve the soul's dark night,
And suffered on the cross so death deterred.
Through Jesus humbled, emptied holy child
All things from A to Z came into being --
And through the Christ is each and every created:
Thus God exalted Jesus so decreeing
This way and name to our spirit would be freeing
And that all creatures here would kneel elated.
