Holy Week: Tuesday

There is no crucifixion, burial, and resurrection without the incarnation.

And being found in human form, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross.

(Philippians 2:8 ESV)

She’ll know I am coming before I am here 
When she hangs her head she’ll see me there 
And then when I come she won’t turn away 
All the beauty and joy will return to her face 
And what of the loneliness? 
Now it is gone 
Lost in the bond of the mother and son 
Every sin that she suffered at the hands of men 
Every single disgrace will be washed clean again 
I will love her completely and when I am grown 
I will carry her out of that tenement room 
I am doing a new thing and soon you will see 
I am coming among you and my name shall be 
Emmanuel, Emmanuel
