Lord, what is man, lost man, that thou should’st be
So mindful of him, that the Son of God
Forsook his glory, his abode,
To become a poor tormented man?
The deity was shrunk into a span,
And that for me, O wondrous love, for me.
Reveal, ye glorious spirits, when ye knew
The way the Son of God took to renew
Lost man, your vacant places to supply,
Blest spirits, tell,
Which did excel,
Which was more prevalent,
Your joy or your astonishment,
That man should be assum’d into the deity,
That for a worm a God should die?
O for a quill drawn from your wing
To write the praises of eternal love;
O for a voice like yours to sing
That anthem here which once you sang above.
Bishop William Fuller (1608-1675)
