Augustine of Hippo tried to convey--or at least point to--the mystery of Incarnation
“Maker of the sun, He is made under the sun.
In the Father He remains, from His mother He goes forth.
Creator of heaven and earth, He was born on earth under heaven.
Unspeakably wise, He is wisely speechless.
Filling the world, He lies in a manger.
Ruler of the stars, He nurses at His mother’s bosom.He is both great in the nature of God, and small in the form of a servant.”
