The Holy Spirit will come upon you,
and the power of Most High will be free
to birth in you an active new world-view,
holy in all its ways offspring will be.
All that is born from you and comes from God
will promote good and new adventures make:
will pierce your heart and old assumptions prod,
and awkward cause your heart to break.
God calls three things in sum: observe and learn
God’s ways and see how they will grow in you;
know the ache chosen endeavours will earn:
the pain when material wealth accrues.
When God calls, few the perks in saying yes,
We greet the seed that grows and loves to bless.
- Luke 1:35, (26-38)
