1 Let the desert sing
and the wasteland flower,
for the glory of Christ
in its light and power
shall be seen on the hills
where he comes to save!

2 Then the blind shall see
and the deaf shall hear
and the lame shall leap
like the fallow deer
and the voice of the silent
shout aloud.

3 When the ransomed walk
with their Lord that day
on the perfect road
called the Sacred Way,
every tear shall give place
to a song of joy!
