The Glorious Impossible

See the Virgin is delivered
In a cold and crowded stall;
Mirror of the Father's glory
Lies beside her in the straw.
He is Mercy's incarnation
Marvel at this miracle!
For the Virgin gently holds
the Glorious Impossible.

Love has come to walk on water,
Turn the water into wine,
Touch the leper, bless the children
Love both human and divine.
Praise the wisdom of the Father
Who has spoken through his Son.
Speaking still, He calls us to
the Glorious Impossible.

Hallelujah!
Hallelujah!
Hallelujah!
Glorious Impossible

He was bruised for our transgressions
And he bears eternal scars.
He was raised for our salvation
And his righteousness is ours.
Praise, oh, praise him, praise the glory
Of this lavished grace so full.
Lift your souls now and receive
the Glorious Impossible!

Hallelujah!
Hallelujah!
Hallelujah!
Glorious Impossible

Praise, oh, praise him, praise the glory
Of this lavish grace so full.
Lift your souls now and receive
the Glorious Impossible.

I thank the Lord for things that are beyond my comprehension, including (but not limited to) the Virgin birth, the sacrifice of His Son to cover sin for all time, and the fact that He chose me to be a recipient of His grace. The manger means nothing without the cross, and I thank God for both of them today.
