Did you behold Him your child?
You looked in His face, what found you there?
Did you see your self, your eyes, your hair?
Did you behold Him Creator?
Omnipotent God, Who created you.
In His image, was yours there too?
Did you behold Him Spirit?
Did His infant coos, speak to your heart?’
What did you hear. In His word to impart?
Did you behold Him The Word?
The Word Incarnate, who dwelled in your womb.
The Visible Word, who arose from the tomb.
Did you behold Him Healer?
In His fingers grasp, was His power perceived?
Did you sense the healing, the lepers received?
Did you behold Him Savior?
Did the pulse of His heart, announce our Salvation bought,
with His selfless love, on the cross He sought.
Mother Mary how did you ever behold Him?
In a stable in Bethlehem, with angels singing,
The Son of Man meeting your eyes,
At rest in your lap…Is God!
