Contemporary LSB: Radical Grace Radio and LSB Hymn 347

Some shows have a theme song, Radical Grace Radio has a theme hymn.  This classic Advent hymn is based on Isaiah 40:1-5.

You can catch a more traditional singing of this hymn over at Lutheran Time Out.  It is the third hymn in their Advent Bonus Edition.

Comfort, comfort my people,
says your God.
Speak tenderly to Jerusalem,
and cry to her
that her warfare is ended,
that her iniquity is pardoned,
that she has received from the LORD's hand
double for all her sins.
A voice cries:
In the wilderness prepare the way of the LORD;
make straight in the desert
a highway for our God.
Every valley shall be lifted up,
and every mountain and hill made low;
the uneven ground shall be level,
and the rough places plain.
And the glory of the LORD shall be revealed,
and all flesh shall see it together,
for the mouth of the LORD has spoken.
Isaiah 40:1-5 (ESV)
