Divine Dichotomy

Sovereign and sweet—
Oh, how can it be?
Awesome and gentle,
The One God in Three.
Endlessly powerful,
Setting us free.
Gracious and beautiful

Glorious Godhead,
Weak little boy.
Creator and servant,
Restraint you employ.
Facing all hardships
And bringing all joy.
Emmanuel, with of God:
Heaven’s envoy.

Defeated, then risen;
Amazing to see
One worthy of glory
With humility.
Simple and marvelous,
One and Only
Jesus: the wondrous
