Nashville, TN (October 24, 2019)
Getty Music has released the new song “Elizabeth,” performed by Kristyn Getty and Ellie Holcomb, which tells the unheralded story of Elizabeth around the time of Mary carrying Jesus before birth. This focus track will be the included as part of the forthcoming live holiday album Sing! An Irish Christmas – Live at the Grand Ole Opry House.
Modern hymn writer Kristyn Getty and Christian music singer/songwriter Ellie Holcomb partnered together to write “Elizabeth,” inspired by her story as told in the Gospel of Luke. The song venerates Elizabeth’s faith in the Lord and the wonderful example she has set for so many generations of Christian women, especially mothers. This song will be included in Sing! An Irish Christmas special airing on TBN this December.
Kristyn Getty says, “We started reading Luke 1 together, two moms being inspired by the faith of Elizabeth, her patience in the timing of the Lord, her acceptance of His plan, her rejoicing over the coming of another woman’s baby, Mary’s Son, who would be her Savior. Real women in real-time with real living faith in the Lord. To get to sing it together was a wonderful gift as we spur each other on—two women, part of a new generation of mothers, praying that we may have holy courage and wisdom to walk in the footsteps of these faithful women who have gone before us”
Ellie Holcomb says,“I wrote this song with Kristyn the very first day that we met, and I just love it. ’Elizabeth’ is a song about a real woman in a real time who knew real ache, and ushering in a real thing that would change everything. I love how Elizabeth’s story points to the living hope we have in Christ, and I love this song because it reminds me to rest upon the wonderful promises that are fulfilled in Jesus.”
