The Kingdom Is at Hand

Miraculously born  as Gabriel prophesied,
this child of promise waxes strong in spirit.
Ordained in infancy, he grows in goodness
and faith, sweet as honey.
Strong as leather, unpretentious as camel hair, 
he raises a wilderness voice, cries repentance.
Baptizing, he prepares the way.
When Jesus comes from Galilee, 
they fulfill righteousness, submit, obey.
John buries his kindred Lord 
in Jordan’s watery grave 
and raises Him up straightway.
The dove-descending Spirit
will abide in this Anointed One.
The voice of God proclaims, 
This is my beloved Son.
