Stephen Davis: Tenth Day

Tenth Day
Stephen Davis

Son of God. Son of Man. Born of woman.

Lord of all the Prophets, Law, and Temple.

Love’s shepherd Jesus, born as human,

Child of ancient promise pure and simple.

Our king of paupers, rich in precious grace,

old faithful patient Anna’s heart’s delight,

old Simeon’s fulfilment in this place

of fragrant presence, love, and holy light.

Our king of angels, this child of power,

Immanuel who comes to those who wait,

to those faithful souls whose hope will flower

by healing streams that flow from Heaven’s gate.

Our hearts his temple, lonely cross his throne,

ruler over all, Priest and King alone.
