From Eternity Afar, the Coming Near of Humanity’s Star

by Christine Sine


Humanity's-Star (1)

by Steve Wickham

Jesus from meagre beginnings,

Christ from eternity afar,

Came lowly to live as we live,

Bethlehem’s baby,

Is Humanity’s Star.

Jesus’ obedient parents,

Embodying faith implicit of trust,

Trusted their inner light,

Because they knew they must.

Tired and poor of spirit,

As they followed the will of the Father,

Yet, young mother-to-be Mary,

No other thing done would she rather.

That virginal dear Advent,

God’s coming here to earth,

Light of light for our path,

The pregnant power,

In that one Baby’s birth.

Drawing back now into the present,

Humanity’s Star: our Lord,

Thousands of Advents of past,

Can’t dim passion, for him

Alone who is, the world over, adored.
