Prepare the way

Mark 1: 1-3

  1. God has sent a messenger to ev'ryone
    to prepare the way of the Lord;
    hear the voice that cries in the wilderness,
    a voice that's strong, hear him say,
    'Prepare the way for the Lord!'
  2. We are all the messengers of Je-sus
    and we prepare the way for the Lord.
    Come to us, Lord, we are your children:
    in our work, in our play
    prepare the way for the Lord.
