A New Ark of the Covenant

Luke 1:46-56

The new ark, house of gold
with haste unto the hills
to kinswoman, barren, now with child
Holy Spirit filled.

Simple greeting brings the grace
A new David dances unconcerned
Elizabeth filled exclaims aloud
blessed be thy womb

How can this be
Why me this grace
the mother of my Lord
of such familiar face.

Too good to me
is the Lord above
the fulfillment of the promise
in one I dearly love.

Enmity, enmity
garden, serpent, Eve
the crushing of his head
does now begin with thee

Magnify the Lord
chosen handmaid, fair
His mercy now forever
is entrusted to thy care.
