A Word Went Out to Mary

I have always loved the gentle beauty of both the text and tune of “Lo, How a Rose.”  More recently, I discovered that there was another set of words written for this tune, “A Great and Mighty Wonder,” which emphasizes the high and holy nature of the child who arrives among us.  Here I reference both texts while exploring the marvel of God’s arrival through physical birth, in Jesus and in our own bodies.
