Like every newborn
“The Lord is King, and hath put on his glorious apparel, and girded himself with strength.” (Psalm 93:1)
Like every newborn, he has come from very far.
His eyes are closed against the brilliance of the star.
So glorious is he, he goes to this immoderate length
To show his love for us, discarding power and strength.
Girded for war, humility his mighty dress,
He moves into the battle wholly weaponless
