41 And it came to pass, that, when Elisabeth heard the salutation of Mary, the babe leaped in her womb; and Elisabeth was filled with the Holy Ghost:
Luke 1:41 KJV
MORE THAN KIN
When dear Elizabeth heard Mary’s voice,
Her baby John the Baptist leapt within.
The presence of the Lord made both rejoice,
For John and Jesus were much more than kin.
Then thirty years would pass until that day
When John did baptize Jesus to commence
The start of such a mission that would stay
Within the hearts of men forever thence.
Did they grow up as cousins sometimes do,
Together playing games and running ’round?
Most surely did they know then as they grew
The things they had to do were so profound?
One day upon the Jordan John would point
Toward the Lamb of God did God appoint.
REMEMBER: The Holy Spirit will fill you with joy when you contemplate upon Jesus.
