God now Man: real joy

He was in the world, and though the world was made through him, the world did not recognise him. He came to that which was his own, but his own did not receive him. John 1:10,11

God now Man: the angels sing
the glory of the newborn King;

but then, and now, the world refuses;
– with idle thoughts distracts, confuses.

[How inconvenient to submit,
and so receive the perfect gift.]

But he, who is, and had designed
our world, and all its life,
saw crime, and greed, and hate, and strife,
but came to save —
the Babe, the Man, God’s Word,
to take the guilt repentant sinners
had incurred.
