Refrain:

All   I will make a way in the wilderness,

and rivers in the desert.

1    ‘I am the Lord, your Holy One,  

the Creator of Israel, your King.’

2    Thus says the Lord, who makes a way in the sea,  

a path in the mighty waters,

3    ‘Remember not the former things,  

nor consider the things of old.

4    ‘Behold, I am doing a new thing;  

now it springs forth, do you not perceive it?

5    ‘I will make a way in the wilderness

and rivers in the desert,  

to give drink to my chosen people,

6    ‘The people whom I formed for myself,  

that they might declare my praise.’

Isaiah 43.15,16,18,19,20c,21

All   Glory to the Father and to the Son

and to the Holy Spirit;

as it was in the beginning is now

and shall be for ever. Amen.

All   I will make a way in the wilderness,

and rivers in the desert.
