The Face of God
The inspired historian makes it very clear.
That at earth's dawn the Father not alone,
Nor without Christ,
His new creation formed;
"God fashioned man," He says,
"And gave to him the face of God."
What but to say that He was not alone,
that God stood by God's side;
When the Lord made man in the image of the Lord?
