"Elizabeth's Song": message for the First Sunday in Advent, Mark Nicholas

Luke Chapter 1 v 1-25, 39-45

 

Our theme for Advent 2016 is "Songs of Joy, Songs of Deliverance". For the first Sunday in Advent we look at Elizabeth, mother of John the Baptist, and her song of joy on meeting her cousin, Mary.

When Elizabeth heard Mary’s greeting, the baby in her womb leaped. She was filled with the Holy Spirit, and sang out exuberantly,

You’re so blessed among women,
    and the babe in your womb, also blessed!
And why am I so blessed that
    the mother of my Lord visits me?
The moment the sound of your
    greeting entered my ears,
The babe in my womb
    skipped like a lamb for sheer joy.
Blessed woman, who believed what God said,
    believed every word would come true!
