|(From mural in a Bethlehem chapel)|
With us. Not a high priest afar off who can't be touched. In the flesh. Fully man yet fully God.
Veiled in flesh the Godhead see;
Hail th’incarnate Deity,
Pleased with us in flesh to dwell,
Jesus our Emmanuel.
Mild He lays His glory by,
Born that man no more may die.
Born to raise the sons of earth,
Born to give them second birth.
(From "Hark! The Herald Angels Sing" by Charles Wesley)
"But Mary kept all these things, and pondered them in her heart." (Luke 2:19)
