        There’s a voice
        in the wilderness crying,
        A call from the ways untrod:
        Prepare in the desert a highway,
        A highway for our God!
        The valleys shall be exalted,
        The lofty hills brought low;
        Make straight all the crooked places,
        Where the Lord our God may go!


        O Zion, that bringest good tidings,
        Get thee up to the heights and sing!
        Proclaim to a desolate people
        The coming of their King.
        Like the flowers
        of the field they perish,
        The works of men decay,
        The power and pomp of nations
        Shall pass like a dream away.


        But the word of our God endureth,
        The arm of the Lord is strong;
        He stands in the midst of nations,
        And He will right the wrong.
        He shall feed
        His flock like a shepherd,
        And fold the lambs to His breast;
        In pastures of peace He’ll lead them,
        And give to the weary rest.


        There’s a voice
        in the wilderness crying,
        A call from the ways untrod:
        Prepare in the desert a highway,
        A highway for our God!
        The valleys shall be exalted,
        The lofty hills brought low;
        Make straight all the crooked places,
        Where the Lord our God may go!
