Advent Poem 18


Wit Wonders
Anonymous

A god and yet a man,
A maide and yet a mother:
Wit wonders what wit can
Conceave this or the other.

A god and can he die?
A dead man, can he live?
What wit can well replye?
What reason reason give?

God, Truth itselfe, doth teach it.
Man's wit senkis too far under
By reason's power to reach it:
Beleeve and leave to wonder.
