What love is this?

Swaddling band, Italy 1590-1600 Museum no. B.878-1993













O Father, what love is this?
You sent your only Son,
forever wrapped in love,
to take our bone and flesh,
born of woman by the Spirit's power,
and wrapped in swaddling bands,
to suffer and die for us,
the just for the unjust,
that we might be wrapped
in his righteousness.
O Father, what love is this?
