He shall grow up before Him ...

The Father had not before
Seen a holy Babe, a holy Child
Or a holy Youth, at each stage displaying
Wisdom perfect to His growth.
"He shall grow up before him ..."
In goodness that was perfect, perfection
That was divine.  Straight to the light
The sapling grows; straight too
To its source of moisture, for He
Was "as a root out of dry ground".
Not straight saplings but parts of His creation still!
