Catechism 21

What sort of Redeemer is needed to bring us back to God?
One who is truly human and also truly God.
(New City Catechism)
 
Can both dwell in one body –
            God and man,
                        as though
            torn asunder, the two
were somehow reconciled?
 
As far as east is from west:
            the division of
                        holy and human
            yet brought somehow together,
one man across the chasm.
 
From dust, yet glorious:
            what does this
                        now tell of us
            who say, To err is human,
and hide in this excuse?
