Your love authored life
when You spoke that one Word
You’re the One who created order
Creation, Your way.
And Your Word dressed Himself in flesh,
embracing the sin-stained form we inherited from Adam,
to remove the sadness from our clothes.
The Saviour’s love frees the world,
for what has ever been kinder than His incarnation?
His sinlessness breathed life into compassion,
cleaning that sad smudge from the bony outfit every human wears.
Glory to the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit!
He erased the anguish from our flesh.
