Every valley shall be exalted and every
hill made low. And all God’s people
shall see together the glory of the Lord.
A voice cries out in the wilderness,
“Prepare the way of the Lord, Make straight
in the desert a highway, a highway for our God.”
Comfort all my people. The time for war is gone.
The blind shall see, the deaf shall hear,
the lame shall leap for joy.
Stand upon the mountain top. O lift your voice
to the world. Sing joyfully, Jerusalem:
“Behold, behold your God.”
