1. And it may be right now
you are in wilderness -
alone and lost and dry as dust -
and full of emptiness.



2.  Then can you hear John's call
there in your wilderness?
Will you this day prepare the way,
receive the King of all?



3.  At times we make our lives
so complex and contrived.
He purifies and simplifies
in His refining fire.



4.  Lord take the straightest path
remove all that obstructs
come and abide always inside
the temple of our hearts.
