And the maiden shall conceive and bear a son; Is 7:14

Angel of God descends from on high
Proclaiming a destiny, already realised
Her Yes prophesied, maiden meek and mild
She to carry the Jesus child

And a sword shall pierce your soul; Lu 2:35

Sorrow her anguish, potion of her cup
Yes! in pure kneading, bane of her bread
Foot of his cross, her heart there bleeding
Mother of nations to Heaven uplifting

O death, where is thy sting? 1 Cor 15: 55-57

To Death Land he descended anointed Christ
Son of Mary, destined to rise
A gaping hole his tomb a sign
Resurrection day cannot be denied
