Prepare the Way

for the LORD

For those who wait upon the Lord 

Will renew their strength.

They will soar on wings like eagles. 

They will run and not grow weary.

They will walk - yes they will walk! - 

And not grow faint.

 

Do you hear the voice  

Calling out in the wilderness,

“Prepare! 

Prepare the way for the Lord!

His glory will be revealed, 

And all our people will see it.

Prepare! 

Prepare the way for the Lord, our God!

Prepare! Prepare the way for the Lord!”

 

For those who wait upon the Lord 

Will renew their strength.

They will soar on wings like eagles. 

They will run and not grow weary.

They will walk - yes they will walk! - 

And not grow faint.

They will walk - yes they will walk! - 

And not grow faint.

 

So take comfort, my people.

Speak in tenderness and love.

For our Lord is everlasting, 

 

Creator of all the earth.

He shepherds all in his flock  

And gathers the lambs in his arms.

He knows all your needs, 

And shed His blood for your sins.

 

So listen to that voice  

Calling out in the wilderness!

“Prepare! 

Prepare the way for the Lord!

His glory will be revealed, 

And all our people will see it.

Prepare! 

Prepare the way for the Lord, our God!

Prepare! Prepare the way for the Lord!”

 

For those who wait upon the Lord 

Will renew their strength.

They will soar on wings like eagles. 

They will run and not grow weary.

They will walk - yes they will walk! - 

And not grow faint.

They will walk - yes they will walk! - 

And not grow faint.
