An antiphon from the Advent liturgy, summarising the annunciation scene. The verses from the prophet Isaiah foretell the coming of the Lord, a prophecy which was fulfilled when Mary became the mother of the Redeemer.
Antiphon melody: Margaret Daly
Organist: Fr Columba McCann OSB
The angel of the Lord brought the good news to Mary,
and she conceived by the power of the Holy Spirit.
A voice cries, "Prepare in the desert
the way for the Lord.
Clear a highway across the wastelands
for the coming of our God.
Every mountain and hill shall be levelled,
every valley filled in.
Every cliff shall become a plateau
all the ridges a plain.
Then the glory of the Lord will be revealed;
humankind will all see it together."
