Inspired by Luke 2:19
Ten tiny fingers, ten tiny toes,
soft newborn baby as fresh as a rose—
one perfect son for a mother to love;
one perfect child sent from Father above.

         See the Lord Jesus, glowing with grace.
         See Mary smile as she touches His face.
         God has descended to live among men
         and make us all one with our Father again.

Nails pierce His hands and nails pierce His feet,
a halo of thorns crowns His countenance sweet—
one perfect Son to love all mankind;
one perfect Savior our chains to unbind.

         See the Lord Jesus, glowing with grace.
         See Mary weep as she touches His face.
         God has descended to die among men
         and make us all one with our Father again.
