Litany: Son of God, Son of Man

Here’s a responsive affirmation of faith from Kenneth I. Morse. 

Litany: Son of God, Son of Man

He was the Son of God.
He was the Son of Man.

He came down from heaven.
He was born in a stable.

Kings came to his cradle.
His first home was a cave.

He was born to be a king.
He was a child of Mary.

He was the greatest among rulers.
He was the least among servants.

He was loved and honored.
He was despised and rejected.

He was gentle and loving.
He made many enemies.

He counseled perfection.
He was a friend of sinners.

He was a joyful companion.
He was a man of sorrows.

He said, "Rejoice."
He said, "Repent."

"Love God with all your heart."
"Love your neighbor as yourself."

"Don't be anxious."
"Count the cost."

"Deny yourself."
"Ask and receive."

In him was life.
He died on a cross.

He was a historic person.
He lives today.

He was Jesus of Nazareth.
He is Christ the Lord.
