The Evangeliad (1:35-39)


 Section 1:35-39 (corresponding to Luke 1:34-38)
 
 "How shall the Mighty One accomplish this,
Bring fruit to a tree of unflowered bliss?"
"The Holy Spirit will descend on you,
Hov'ring in blessing o'er a world born new!

The Most High's power will o'ershadow thee:
Shekinah glory of his majesty,
As in the Temple, full of glory's awe;
The one born of you shall be Son of God!

Yes, even your cousin Elizabeth--
A baby shall come to the childless!
Six months now has the barren been bearing,
For nothing exceeds God's power and caring!"

Then Mary spoke, in love's obedience:
"I am God's servant, this moment and hence,
May it be unto me as you have said."
And Gabriel bowed, and away he went.
