Prepare the way of the Holy One,
make God’s paths straight
Is there room for the child in the inn?
How do I prepare a way for God
through my cluttered life?
How do I clear a straight path
through my schedule?
Some things have to be moved or tossed,
a vacancy created.
How my nature abhors this vacuum!
Shall I plead I can’t squeeze God in?
Or take courage and prepare a way?
God, help me to open a way for you
to enter my heart, my time, my desires.
Even when I want so many other things,
give me grace to want you.
Prepare your way in me.
Prepare… your way
