PRepare the way, O Zion, your Christ is drawing near. Let every hill and valley a level way appear.Greet him who comes in glory, whom prophets did proclaim.O blest is Christ who comes to us in God's most holy name. He brings God's rule, O Zion, he comes from heaven above.His rule is peace and freedom, and justice, truth, and love.Lift high your praise resounding, his grace and joy proclaim.O blest is Christ who comes to us in God's most holy name. Fling wide your gates, O Zion, your Savior's rule embrace.His tidings of salvation proclaim to every place.All lands will bow before him, their voices will proclaim:O blest is Christ who comes to us in God's most holy name.
