Glimpse of Empathy (Dorsimbra)

My wife and I have often thought and said,
When seeing our beloved daughter’s grief:
“I would gladly take this for you instead,
If only it might bring you some relief!”

Fear not! Good news is here!
Immanuel–it’s true!
God has come to us!
Glory to God indeed!

I see in my deep love for them a glimpse–
The Greater Father’s love that moves His heart,
The Greater Husband’s devotion and joy–
That blinds me by the wonder of it all.
