A Heavenly Visit

A Jewess of Nazareth, city of Galilee
Alongside Joseph, soon to be espoused
Descendants of David, humbly poor
Calibre in carpentry, provide for his bride
To Mary an angel would arrive
Words of the angel Gabriel, she will bring forth a son
A sovereign Saviour of the world
Mary blessed and highly favoured
To bear the chosen one, both ruler and King
Yet surprising, afar woman of old
Elizabeth of Judah, a promise to unfold
For she would soon be with child too
Nothing is impossible for God to do
Be it unto him, in accordance to the word
Leaping babe of thy womb, promise arise
A secret to rejoice, beyond angelic voice
A journey to Nazareth
Joseph’s divine dream
Awareness anew, a promise to be true
