How do you capture the ascents of angels?
How do you put words to the taste of their light?
You cannot describe how their words burn right thru you
How you became dizzy with heart pounding fright
In the midst of your fear, how they sang you a song
To the glory of God most High
How all of a sudden, that when they departed
That they left a hole in the sky
How do you worship a king in a cattle trough?
When you cannot bow any lower than he?
And what king of gift to give Someone with nothing?
In humiliating humility
Wrapped up in rags, what a heart-breaking sign
Yet on his sweet face, what a delight
The darkness that prows here cannot comprehend
This impossibly bright point of light
So everyone listened in awe and amazement
To all we’d been told ‘bout this beautiful boy
But Mary, his mother, she wordlessly wondered
And pondered her treasure of joy
Who could conceive how the Savior was born
In a place only fit for the cattle to feed
His poverty made him our perfect Provision
The one hope for our every need
