The lyrics of this song are so true and convicting.
If, during the Advent and Christmas seasons, we give much thought to Christ and His birth at all, we usually sentimentalize the story, robbing it of its earthiness.
But the power of Christmas lies in the fact that God took on human flesh and was born to human parents.
Mary and Joseph were faced with an unimaginable situation in which they had to ask themselves: "Do I believe?"
By the power of God's Holy Spirit, these two sinner/saints, real human beings, answered, "Yes" and served as the earthly parents of "God in flesh appearing."
