In Romances VIII St John of the Cross continues the story of the Incarnation with an account of the Annunciation to Mary.
Then He summoned an archangel,
Blessed Gabriel by name.
To a lowly girl called Mary
The divine archangel came.
For with her co-operation
This great mystery could be,
With her flesh the Word was clothed
By the Blessed Trinity.
All three Persons worked that wonder,
Though in One alone t’was done.
In the womb of blessed Mary
Word became Incarnate Son.
He that erst had had but Father
Had a Mother likewise then,
And He was conceived in Mary
As have been no other men.
Hers His flesh and hers His dwelling
Ere His human life began,
Wherefore He is called together
Son of God and Son of Man
