Bible: Isa 40:3-5

40:3 A voice cries out,

In the wilderness clear a way for the Lord;

construct in the desert a road for our God.

40:4 Every valley must be elevated,

and every mountain and hill leveled.

The rough terrain will become a level plain,

the rugged landscape a wide valley.

40:5 The splendor 1  of the Lord will be revealed,

and all people 2  will see it at the same time.

For 3  the Lord has decreed it.” 4
