Elizabeth is a collaboration between Kristyn Getty and Ellie Holcomb.
It takes the response of Elizabeth to meeting the expectant Mary, and expresses her rejoicing and faith as she recognises the fulfilment of God’s redemptive promises in the baby in Mary’s womb.

The lyrics:

Elizabeth
There’s an echo in your voice I’ve heard before, ooh
Such emptiness
All the years of crying out for something more, ooh
But you have lived to see
That joy comes in the morning

Come and lay your head
On His promises
Oh, find your rest
Elizabeth

Elizabeth
Feel the baby dance for joy within your womb, whoa
Magnificent
Mary’s Son is sent to overcome the tomb, whoa-oh-oh-oh
But you have lived to see
That joy comes in the morning

Come and lay your head
On His promises
Oh, find your rest
Elizabeth

Woman after woman who will follow
Will carry beauty and a longing of their own
But when I hear the rhythm of your name
Oh, I remember once again
That none of us will ache without a living hope

Elizabeth
Oh, blessed is the one who has believed
In the Rising Sun
Who will guide our feet into the path of peace
For we will live to see
That joy comes in the morning

Come and lay your head
On His promises
Oh, find your rest
Come and lay your head
On His promises
Oh, find your rest
Elizabeth
Elizabeth
