The Child - Poem by Gert Strydom

At a time in a stable, in a manger
a child came into this world
with all the knowledge that does exist,
and He could stretch out His hands
and cause things to come into existence

but as a mere human
He came into our world
to give His love
and life away to others.

Somehow we did start to forget about Him,
we started to forget
to like a child in innocence to wait upon Him,
to trust in his omnipotence
and now mere men seek for proof
outside of His true word
and He is taken from an omnipotent God to only a man,
while His godliness is estranged from Him.
