Based on Isaiah 40: 3-4, Mark 1: 1-3
Man, we got to get the road ready!
The Messiah is coming. I must be ready.
I was afraid,
but I remembered that he said in his word that he would come for me.
He also said that his son had come
that I might have life more abundantly.
Well I been praying and waiting.
I am ready.
Come, Lord Jesus
for by your grace I am ready
I can see the lightening flashing.
I can hear the thunder roll.
I see Jesus coming.
I am ready to see him.
I see others who are waiting with me.
