True God and Yet a Man

True God and yet a Man?

Tune: DIVINE PARADOX
Published in 1 hymnal

Full Text

1 True God and yet a Man?
True maid and yet a mother?
Thought wonders how thought can
Conceive one or the other.

2 A God and can He die?
A dead Man, can He live?
What can thought well reply?
What reason reason give?

3 God, truth itself does teach;
Our thoughts sink too far under
For reason's pow'r to reach.
Believe and leave to wonder!
