I see the King standing on the mountain, And He says prepare ye the way.

It is not the same as a recent song with the same title by Donna Guenther, which starts "I hear a sound coming from the mountain, I hear a sound like a trumpet in the distance, Take a look around the season's changing ... "

Prepare ye the way,
Prepare ye the way,
Prepare ye the way,
Of the Lord.

I see the King standing on the mountain,
I see Him clearer each day ...
