Love defined

Having never been to heaven

We can only try to imagine

The splendor upon splendor our Lord left behind

To descend to be a Man

(For such was God’s blest plan)

The act was infinitely beyond the word “kind.”

Descend, ah, what a word

For the coming of our Lord

Come, descend to earth (raw to the rind)

But come down, He grandly did

Defeating satan’s Edenic bid

A descent beyond which man can wrap his mind.

It’s doubtful He came in December

(It’s only a time to remember)

Christ came (unlike us) knowing what He’d find

He found man lame and ill

Filled with pride and black self-will

He found him physically and spiritually blind

But, O Friend, He had a cure

For all sinners ever endure.

Birth, Boyhood, then His plan began to unwind

Grow, Friend, beyond His birth

Beyond His ministry on earth

Seek for your life His holy mind.

Believe His words in Revelation

Make Christ your fullest expectation.

He is Love eternal, yes, Love defined.
