I thought I’d bring up something that was mentioned at Bible class this morning.

 

Here a maid was found with child,
Yet remianed a virgin mild.
In her womb this truth was shown:
God was there upon His throne.

 

Then stepped forth the Lord of all
From His pure and kingly hall;
God of God, yet fully man,
His heroic course began.
(LSB 332:3-4)

 

It’s cool how God was upon His throne in the womb of Mary. All two often we put to the back of our minds that God was in the womb of Mary 9 months prior to His birth. He didn’t just enter into the baby that had been growing in her womb on Christmas.

 

Its also cool how the fourth verse phrases things. "Then stepped forth the Lord of all, from His pure and kingly hall" That;s still talking about Mary’s womb pure and kingly hall. The Lord of all, born as an infant!

 

You just have to love good Hymnody. 🙂
