The Animals Respond (for the 5th Sunday in Lent)

Thus says the LORD who makes a way through waters of the sea,

In meeting horse and warrior sends them down to defeat.

“Do not remember former things, consider things of old.

What’s new is here already: in the wilderness a road.”

The rivers there are not for them, far out in that beyond.

God’s people who are passing through for only several days

will find a place to rest and play, and give their maker praisel
