Prince of Peace

by Mark Weinrich

“And the government will rest upon His shoulders…”
~ Isaiah 9:6

Glorious names
crowned his head,
awakened in
his first-drawn breath.

The world’s weight
descended on shoulders
small, swaddled
in the manger’s straw.

As lantern light
kissed his placid face,
only His Father knew
the desperate need, the depth 
of grace.
