Advent with Messiah: 1 of 24

View the introductory post for these 24 days with Handel’s Messiah.

Comfort ye, comfort ye my people, saith your God. Speak ye comfortably to Jerusalem, and cry unto her, that her warfare is accomplish’d, that her Iniquity is pardoned. The voice of him that crieth in the wilderness; prepare ye the way of the Lord; make straight in the desert a highway for our God.

Ev’ry valley shall be exalted, and ev’ry mountain and hill made low; the crooked straight, and the rough places plain.
-Isaiah 40:1-4

And the glory of the Lord shall be revealed, and all flesh shall see together; for the mouth of the Lord hath spoken it.
-Isaiah 40:5
