When peaceful silence lay over all,
and night was in the midst of her swift course:
from your royal throne, O God, down from the heavens,
leapt your almighty Word.
The anthem around The Magnificat in Evening Prayer from the C of E's Common Worship online. What a lovely image. Shades of The Song of Songs:
Behold, he comes, leaping over the mountains, bounding over the hills. (2:8)
Jesus, of course.
