Christ’s love: an Advent poem

Love caused Your Incarnation;

Love brought You down to me.

Your thirst for my salvation

Procured my liberty.

Oh, love beyond all telling,

That led You to embrace

In love, all love excelling,

Our lost and fallen race.

Paul Gerhardt (1607-1676), “O Lord, How Shall I Meet You”
