Description

SATB (divisi) with organ and oboe. Text from Isaiah 35:1-10. Absolutely gorgeous (and according to some, "life-changing"). We're not kidding. One of Malcolm's best, and a perennial favorite!

Lyrics

The desert shall rejoice, and blossom as a rose: it shall blossom abundantly, and rejoice with praise and singing. For the ears of the deaf shall hear, and the eyes of the blind shall be opened. For the tongue of the dumb shall sing, and the lame will dance for joy. For the ground will become a po,Ol, and the dry land will become springs of water. As the ransomed return to the Lord, they shall come back singing unto Zion with joy.
