The hymn, “O Come, All Ye Faithful,” includes the line, “lo, he abhors not the Virgin’s womb.” J. Gresham Machen comments on the incarnation:
“The eternal Son of God, He through whom the universe was made, did not despise the virgin’s womb! What a wonder is there! It is not strange that it has always given offence to the natural man. But in that wonder we find God’s redeeming love, and in that babe who lay in Mary’s womb we find our Saviour who thus became man to die for our sins and bring us into peace with God.” (The Virgin Birth of Christ, p. 394).
