“Prepare the way,” the prophet said,
“The Lord is coming soon!
Make straight the path before Him
And let your heart sing in tune.”
Thus sang the rugged prophet
To a people tone deaf grown,
But some listened and repented,
For the light within them shown.
These repented and were washed new
By the water and the word.
They were reborn to a new life
With a new melody heard.
“Believe in Jesus and be saved,”
They sang in earnest tones.
This message is the theme of life
For valleys of dry bones.
We sing this song throughout our life,
Wherever He may send:
In this life for a short time,
Then a new song without end.
