(Henry Law, "Christ is All" 1854)
"Unto you is born a Savior, who is Christ the Lord."
Wonder of wonders! The mighty God, without
ceasing to be God, becomes man to redeem us!
Let the greatest king become the lowest beggar;
let the richest prince leave his palace for the vilest
cell of a loathsome prison; it is as nothing compared
to the act of Jesus, when He left heaven to put on
the rags of our mortality!
The Creator of all things becomes a creature!
The Almighty is a weak babe!
The Eternal is a child of time!
The Infinite is contracted into the limits of poor flesh!
Is not this the wonder of wonders?
Is not this grace which has no bounds?
