A Poem for Theophany

He became just like me
clothed in humanity
hungry and tired
so close to harm
God lay as a baby in frail arms.
Oh, great mystery!

He breathed the air I breathe
such his humanity
touching the water
air and the land
fully God, yet He's fully man.
Oh, great mystery!

The Holy Spirit
came down like a dove
The voice of the Father said
"This is my Son, beloved in whom
I'm well pleased."
Oh, great mystery!

But the whole universe
cannot contain Him
so all is forever changed.
His very touch makes us holy again.
Oh, great mystery!

Oh, Great Mystery!
God is a trinity
A humble deity
and all things made new!
