The Word Became Flesh


In the beginning was the Word

and the Word was with God

and the Word was God.


And the Word became flesh

and dwelt among us:

a child was born to us

a son was given to us.


We saw His glory -

glory as of the only-begotten

from the Father

full of grace and truth.


And so He shall ever be

Wonderful Counselor

Mighty God

Eternal Father

Prince of Peace.


Behold the tender mercy of our God:

the Sunrise from on high has visited us!

He shines upon those who sit in darkness

and the shadow of death

to guide our feet into the way of peace

and to accomplish redemption for His people.


And so He is named

Jesus – for He saves His people from their sins

Emmanuel – for He is forever God with us.
