On the 8th day of Christmas, Angelbert Chikere brings you:

“Unto us a child is born.”

In might and humility
You came…

In the flapping hands and feet
…of innocence

The wind, the star, the night
The darkening eve’ that saw the light

…a child is born

Growing ages that looked forward
To this night that brings peace inward

On this special night…
…which is not just a moment in time
But a break of eternity into time…

…The Child is born

On this night, still and quiet…
Bringing delight to human plight

…The Saviour is born

On this night, when might renounced strength
…and renounced wealth
And tossed in that swaddling cloth…
That kept away straw and hay
…and questioned its worth…

The Maker in the made’s skin…
The Creator becomes His creature’s kin
…the Creator in the hands of His creature

On this very night
…that stretches into events called Christmas
Humility is announced…
As Divinity seemed renounced
