First Coming - Madeline L'Engle

 

God did not wait till the world was ready,

till...nations were at peace.

God came when the Heavens were unsteady,

and prisoners cried out for release.

 

God did not wait for the perfect time.

God came when the need was deep and great.

God dined with siners in all their grim,

turned water into wine.  God did not wait.

 

till hearts were pure.  In joy God came

to a tarnished world of sin and doubt.

To a world like ours, of anguish shame

God cae, and God's Light would not go out.

 

God came to a world which did not mesh,

to heal its tangles, shield its scorn.

In the mystery of Word made Flesh

the Maker of the stars was born.

 

We cannot wait till the world is sane

to raise our songs with joyful voice,

for to share out frief, to touch our pain,

God came with Love:  Rejoice! Rejoice!
