Emmanuel

:Lambardos Emmanuel - The Virgin of Tenderness
God with us,
before us,
behind us,
beside us,
in human flesh,
dusty feet
and soiled hands.

God with us,
thirsty,
hungry,
tired,
fearful,
angry
and filled with compassion.

God with us,
blind gain sight,
leper's sores heal,
the possessed
are cleansed,
the prostitutes
and tax collectors
repent.

God with us,
the pious are humbled,
bones of the pharisees
picked dry
in vile tombs
of self-righteousness.

God with us,
a child
born in a stable,
a sapling of the Most High,
Emmanuel,
the long awaited promise.
