Isaiah 40:9

Get you up to a high mountain,
   O Zion, herald of good tidings;
lift up your voice with strength,
   O Jerusalem, herald of good tidings,
   lift it up, do not fear;
say to the cities of Judah,
   ‘Here is your God!

A voice beyond all others

There is a Voice
beyond all others
the heart strains
to hear, for it is life
and joy, bringing
news of the love that
comes anew every
morning awakening
hope for the day when
waiting is done and
fullness comes.

Trained by Love
to want nothing but
the love …Love is,
the heart, finely
tuned, leans forward
to capture every sound
and syllable, every
note and song yearning
for the moment,
word and note make magic
and the wanted news
fills the heart with the
wonder for which
every heart hungers.

Rise up O Voice, and
speak, sing, shout
the morning song that
fills the heart,
strengthens soul
and makes alive
once more.

Pr. David L. Miller
