Elizabeth, you tried for a long time
To have a child but you were
past your prime?
Was there no hope left in you at all
before you received this special call.
Your husband and you were both devout
you trusted God with never a doubt.
Our trust gets weak for us today
but you had a faith that wouldn’t stray.
What did you think when it came to you
that you’d have a son before
you were through?
You knew he’d be special
but did you know
the new direction his life would go?
Did you know John would look so odd
as he became a messenger for God?
And did you know his life he would give
to prepare the way for a relative?
We still have a chance late in life
to help lead others in a world of strife.
We might not be the main one who acts
but we can contribute to the facts.
