Wednesday Riff: Wilderness

The wilderness will blossom, the desert will bloom.
The dry places will break out in songs of praise.
In the mountains and the valleys and the plains in between,
In the streets and the cities,
In the towns and the villages.
In the pubs and the churches,
In the sports stadiums and back gardens,
In the lounges and kitchens,
In the bedrooms and hallways.
At school, at work, and in the places of unemployment,
In the churches and pubs,
In the nightclubs and cinemas,
In the alleys and back streets,
In the schools and the precincts,
In the underpasses and walkways,
In the shouting and silence,
In the busyness and bustle.
In the days and nights, through the minutes and years.
The desert will bloom, the wilderness will wake,
And hope will arise as the God of peace arrives.

If you've appreciated this, why not...
