In the wilderness prepare the way of the Lord,
make straight in the desert a highway for our God.
Every valley shall be lifted up,
and every mountain and hill be made low;
the uneven ground shall become level,
and the rough places a plain.
Then the glory of the Lord shall be revealed,
and all people shall see it together
God, prepare your Way in me.
What valleys in me need to be lifted up?
Raise those low places.
What mountains in me need to be brought low?
Dismantle those mighty things.
What rough places in me need to be made smooth?
Smooth them out.
How might your glory be revealed in me?
Let it shine.
