God So Small
One day Jesus, by a will that was His own,
stood up, then stepped down from His eternal throne.
He compressed Himself into a virgin’s egg.
Holy Spirit came into the human race.
That egg did grow to become an embryo.
This new life began without sperm, don’t you know.
The boy child sure did grow inside Mary’s womb.
Her belly did expand to give ample room.
The birth process did squeeze His skull once again.
His small cry would clear the fluids from His lungs.
His tiny tears would moisten chubby cheeks.
His hunger cries would be heard for many weeks.
This infant boy, I Am, fit on a forearm.
At each meal tiny God would keep Mary warm.
The shepherds awed when they came in from watching sheep.
Infant God came to make their jobs obsolete.
With angel voices still echoed in their heads,
a deep love of God replace both fear and dread.
The thought that must have crossed the mind of them all:
“How in the world did God fit in one so small?”
