And advanced in years

A couple is without child

To him who first

Would come before the Christ


H

From birth, all his days

Dedicated to the Lord


O

Does not believe

And is silenced ’til the birth


L

When he makes known

John will be the baby’s name


D

Who hear of these things

And wonder what this child will become

 

Behold the Message!

A ruler from you shall come forth

Oh Light of Eternity

Birthed that You might save

Wrapped so sublime

In the womb of Mary

The sins of many shall He bear
