Today... 'He who comes from heaven'
Descending from the heavens He came down
born as a baby in Bethlehem town.
Emmanuel, God dwelling upon this earth
born into our world by a virgin birth.
The Almighty God condensed to a span
came on earth to tabernacle with man.
He walked our way talked earth's language
reached out to us and helped calm our anguish.
Speaking words of Wisdom and words of Life
and defeating Satan through sacrifice.
The Bread of God given that we might eat.
In Christ we shall will live and be complete.

Poet's Notes about The Poem
John 6: 33—For the bread of God is he which cometh down from heaven, and gives life unto the world. (King James Version)
John 6: 50—This is the bread which comes down from heaven, that a man may eat thereof, and not die. (King James Version)
The Bible calls You by many names
each one giving a glimpse of Your glory.
Like a cut diamond radiating in the sun
with every facet depicting a glorious
aspect of Your Divine Nature.
Today I have thought of You as
"The Carpenters Son"
