Sister Sinjin are a duo (once a trio) who have released songs that Advent themed.
A newly released EP Face Of The Deep, features lyrics inspired by a book of poems by Christina Rossetti that shares the same title.
The track Yes I Knew expresses the doubt of Mary and the assurance of God about his purpose in choosing her to be the mother of Jesus.

The lyrics:
Oh Lord, when you called me did you know
My heart was dejected thro’ and thro’?
Still longing for my captor’s land
Where vineyards and melons grow
Yes I knew, yes I knew
And I called you still, and I called you child
Yes I knew, yes I knew
And I call you now, precious child

But Lord, when you chose me did you know
How marred I was and withered too?
No rose for sweetness, no virtue in me
Timid and rash, hasty, slow
Yes I knew, yes I knew
And I chose you still, and I chose you child
Yes I knew, yes I knew
And I choose you now, precious child

My Lord, when you loved me did you know
How weak were my efforts and how few?
Tepid to love and helpless to do
Jealous to reap, slack to sow
Yes I knew, yes I knew
And I loved you still, and I loved you child
Yes I knew, yes I knew
And I love you now, precious child

Good Lord, who knows all that I cannot know
You dare to know my false my true
My new, my old; good Lord how could you
Love if you’ve known me so?
Yes I knew, yes I knew
Oh I knew you then, yes, I knew you child
Yes I knew, yes I knew
And I know you now, precious child
