Advent Litany: Prepare a Way for the Lord


Here’s a call to worship litany for Advent (or a Blue Christmas service) from John Birch.

Prepare a Way
(referencing Isaiah 40:3-5, Mark 1:3, Matthew 3:3, Luke 3:4)

In the lonely places
The wilderness
Where we stand forlorn
Windswept and alone
Your voice calls out
Prepare a way for the Lord

In the dark places
The shadows
Where we hide our fears
Embrace our tears
Your voice calls out
Prepare a way for the Lord
