The following lyrics are to a song I wrote for my upcoming album, Once Upon A Time. Even though it wasn’t meant to be a holiday song, it has become a favorite Christmas carol among our church friends, and Jason and I will be playing it this Sunday, December 1, at Spring Cypress Church in Spring, TX. Services are open to the public. We’re hoping to get a volunteer to film it (hint! hint!).

ISAIAH

by Jennifer Grassman, 2013

Listen, in the wilderness, a voice is crying,
A voice is crying, in the wild of lost souls,
“Comfort, comfort, ye my children,” the voice is pleading,
The voice is pleading, “Take comfort in your souls.”

Warfare now is ended, bring in the peace,
Bring in the peace to every land,
The battle cry is silenced! Behold your God,
Behold your God, you sons of man,
Sands are falling, winds are changing,
Heaven’s drawing nigh.

Like a flower of the field, we wilt and die,
We wilt and die, like the flowers of the field,
Grass withers and flowers fade but God is forever,
Yes God is forever, and his Word shall never fail.

Warfare now is ended, bring in the peace,
Bring in the peace to every land,
The battle cry is silenced! Behold your God,
Behold your God, you sons of man,
Sands are falling, winds are changing,
Heaven’s drawing nigh.

The valleys shall be lifted up, the mountains made low
Preparing the way for the coming of our God,
The glory of the Lord shall be revealed like a mystery,
Shining through history, at the coming of our God.

Our warfare now is ended, bring in the peace,
Bring in the peace to every land,
The battle cry is silenced! Behold your God,
Behold your God, you sons of man,
Sands are falling, winds are changing,
Heaven’s drawing nigh.
