The Music:The Promise: Isaiah predicts the arrival of John the Baptist with his statement “from the desert a voice cries out.” Note to director: you’ll need aux. percussion. The story:
Isaiah 40:1-5,9 “1 Comfort, yes, comfort My people!” Says your God.2 “Speak comfort to Jerusalem, and cry out to her,That her warfare is ended,That her iniquity is pardoned;For she has received from the Lord’s handDouble for all her sins.” 3 The voice of one crying in the wilderness: “Prepare the way of the Lord;Make straight in the desertA highway for our God.4 Every valley shall be exaltedAnd every mountain and hill brought low;The crooked places shall be made straightAnd the rough places smooth;5 The glory of the Lord shall be revealed,And all flesh shall see it together;For the mouth of the Lord has spoken.”
9 O Zion, You who bring good tidings, Get up into the high mountain; O Jerusalem, You who bring good tidings, Lift up your voice with strength, Lift it up, be not afraid; Say to the cities of Judah, “Behold your God!”
