THE BIRTH AND THE MASSACRE OF THE INNOCENTS
Music by A. Tompkins, J. Sherlock and J. De Ron
The embryo implants the uterine lining, folding within its amniotic
abode
The gut and neural tubes forming in conjunction
Cardiac impulse with foetal brain function
The journey was harsh, days on the road in the dirt
The young couple compelled by the census taker to reach the
City of David
The time came for the birth of her firstborn but no lodgings were
found
So, wrapped in strips of cloth, the child was placed in an animal
feeding trough
In the absence of relations
The human paternal genome left in want
The Word became flesh and blood through the unnatural
conception
The uterine contractions are a source of pain
The agonising passage through cervix dilating
Vacating the endometrium the child emerges, afterbirth, initial
respiration
Infanticide has gripped Ephrath, mothers cry as their children die
His Highness, his wickedness, Herod the Great
Has slaughtered the innocents for his excruciating jealousy
The Magi had informed Herod of the birth of a king
His unbridled ambition was crushed by the arrival of the Christ
He consulted the chief priests and scribes as to the place of birth
Then, with his throne in thought, the ugly violence of the murders
were wrought
But too late for the child of promise had fled to western lands
The Word became flesh and blood through the unnatural
conception
Thus the Christ of prophecy was born
