The Gaithers Sing of Jesus’ Birth as a “Glorious Impossible”


Although Christmas is three months over, this does not stop us from celebrating the birth of Jesus Christ. In fact, as Christians, it should be part of our daily devotion to glorify God for sending His son to dwell on earth with humans. Indeed, His birth is the most precious thing that ever happened in the history of Christianity.

The entire world rejoices for this event most specifically because of its significance in the lives of Christians. Had God not sent His son, it would have been impossible for us to experience the life we have today. This tradition of remembering the worth of Christ’s birth must be carried on for eternity.

Jesus’ Birth as “Glorious Impossible”

One of the indications that men value Jesus’ coming to the world was the creation of countless gospel songs and hymns focused on this. While most of these are usually sung on Christmas, there are those made which you can croon at any time of the year. A good example would be the song entitled “Glorious Impossible.”

The Lyrics

It is a beautiful song just about everything related to our Savior. The lyrics narrate the story of the life of Jesus, including the time He was conceived by His mother, Mary, His birth, miraculous works,  death, and resurrection. Below are some of the lines to the song:

See the Virgin is delivered
In a cold and crowded stall
Mirror of the Father’s glory
Lies beside her in the straw

He is Mercy’s incarnation
Marvel at this miracle!
For the Virgin gently holds
The Glorious Impossible

Love has come to walk on water
Turn the water into wine
Touch the leper, bless the children
Love both human and divine

Praise the wisdom of the Father
Who has spoken through His Son
Speaking still, He calls us to
The Glorious Impossible

Hallelujah (3x)
