the word//a surrendering spoken word

in the beginning was the word

and the word knew that through him everything would be made. and the word knew that to save

he would have to endure pain/ the word knew that to save there would be shame and an earthly body and still to earth he came and

though the word is the most glorious of all he

humbled himself to answer the call of the Father-

not my will but yours be done.

As the word accepted human incompleteness like

being born as a babe, leaning to walk talk and eat and

to grow and to learn and to be an outsider to all

so needed yet heeded yet none but the scum of the earth,

the word chose to surrender.

chose willingly to die and to rise so that through the word we are made new

in christ.

in the beginning was the word

the perfect lamb, the perfect sacrifice

born lowly and humbled and now seated on high.

Jesus. God with us
