A Voice Cries Out (Michael Joncas)

Console my people, the ones dear to me
Speak to the heart of Jerusalem
The time of your mourning is ended now
the Lord of life will come

A voice cries out in the wilderness prepare a way for the Lord
A voice cries out in the wilderness make straight a highway for God
Every valley is made a plain every mountain is leveled
The glory of God shall be revealed and nations will sing your praise (Refrain)

A voice shouts 'cry', O what shall I cry ? All flesh is like grass and its flowers
The grass may wither the flowers may fade but the word of the lord is forever (Refrain)

Zion shout from the mountain top lift up your voice O Jerusalem
And say to the people of Gods own land behold behold your God (Refrain)

The lord will appear as a shepherd holding his lamb in his arms
Keeping his flock so close to his heart leading them all old and young (Refrain)
