Immanuel’s Orphaned Cry

“Yea, once Immanuel’s orphaned cry this universe hath shaken. It went up single, echo less, ‘My God! I am forsaken!’ It went up from the Holy’s lips amidst His lost creation, that of the lost, no son should use these words of desolation.”

Elizabeth Barrett Browning, ‘Cowper’s Grave
