Prepare a way

This is the first post in our March series, “Wilderness”.

In this short, but evocative litany John Birch captures some of the atmospherics of the wilderness as physical and emotional terrain.

Prepare a way

(referencing Isaiah 40:3-5, Mark 1:3, Matthew 3:3, Luke 3:4)

In the lonely places
The wilderness
Where we stand forlorn
Windswept and alone
Your voice calls out
Prepare a way for the Lord

In the dark places
The shadows
Where we hide our fears
Embrace our tears
Your voice calls out
Prepare a way for the Lord
