music and lyric Steve Bell
Isaiah 2:1-5, 7:10-16, 11:1-10, 35:1-10

Oh ancient seer your vision told
Of desert highways streaming home
To the mountain of the Lord
Where nations sound a righteous song forevermore

And on that mountain men will forge
From cruel implements of war
The tools to till and garden soil
The rose will bloom and faces shine with gladdening oil

And it will surely come to pass
Justice will reign on earth at last
The wolf will lie down with the lamb
No beast destroy, no serpent strike the child’s hand

And God himself will choose the sign
A frightened woman in her time
Will bear a son and name him well
God with us! O come, O come, Emmanuel!

  1. Love new “Keening” project! I look forward to sitting with my wife tonight to hear it for the first time with her. We are 20 years into appreciating the gift of Steve Bell. Today, on my walk, I was listening for the 2nd time and just lost it during “Descent”. So glad you and Malcom became friends!
