Harold Macdonald's Muse


God's Little Place



Black Madonna: Virgin of Czestochowa

Harold Macdonald

Jesus Lord and babe, world shaker

Muckle meek, barn-born, our Maker,

God among us, heavenís loss

and Mary, our Theotokos.*


Infinite ,Your tiny form;

Midst lowing animals youíre born.

God is fit for humble birth

by worldly measure, nothing worth


Keep us on the lowly way

simplicity in all we say

so we may enter Jesusí place

and, kneeling, see God face to face.
