Prepare ye the Way of the Lord / I Hear a Sound Coming from the Mountain

This short hymn is particularly suitable for the season of Advent.

It was written by Himmie Gustafson and first published in 1976 - possibly on the LP recording "The Kingdom Sound" (ref).

Sheet music was provided in the book Songs of the Kingdom - though this is now out of print.

The tune has a cut time signature. In the key of D the first few notes are D A, D E.

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 ... "


Light coming from the mountains:    1 I hear a sound coming from the mountain, I hear it louder each day. I hear a sound coming from the mountain, And it says prepare ye the way. Chorus Prepare ye the way, Prepare ye the way, Prepare ye the way, Of the Lord. 2 I see the King standing on the mountain, I see Him clearer each day. I see the King standing on the mountain, And He says prepare ye the way.

1 I hear a sound coming from the mountain,
I hear it louder each day ...

Chorus
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 ...

KEEP IN CASE ORIGINAL IS REMOVED, BUT DO NOT DISPLAY
I hear a sound coming from the mountain,
I hear it louder each day.
I hear a sound coming from the mountain,
And it says, "Prepare ye the way."


Chorus:
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.
I see the King standing on the mountain,
And He says, "Prepare ye the way."
