Tiny One

Hi everyone!

This is a new poem for Advent. It is about Jesus new to our world, with so much ahead of Him as He grows into the man who will save us from our sin. I can picture His mother, Mary, looking at her firstborn and wondering about all that’s in store for Him.

God bless!

“Tiny One”
tiny hand in the straw
here to answer God’s call,
to reach and to hold
with a Love bright and bold.

tiny feet in the cold
here to walk a long road
to carry the Word
so that it might be heard.

tiny eyes in the light,
small, new, and bright
shining so bravely
for this world He’ll be saving.

tiny lungs breathe Earth’s air
and small ears hear a prayer
as Mary welcomes her son:
Now Your journey’s begun…

    I love this poem. Jesus’ birth as a regular boy, with so much ahead of him but the truth of living a normal life like everyone else in his community, is one of my favorite concepts of the Christmas story. While Jesus is our Savior he was also fully man and experienced all that we go through as regular people. You capture all his regularity and extrordinary measures in this poem. He was very much like other babies: fascinated by the world around him, simply excited to see and touch his surroundings, with eyes wide in wonder. But his extended hand and tiny feet tell of so much more than what we could ever hope to do with our time on earth. Parents often exclaim over what their little children may someday do; can you imagine Mary’s excitement of being a new mother and holding her baby, also knowing that she’s holding her Savior and all that He would someday do? Listen to “You’re Here” by Francesca Batestelli. The song nicely parallels your poem.
