I wonder who will speak tenderly in the crowd when the tear gas is launched.
I wonder who will cry with the mother of the gunman when the penalty is paid.
I wonder whose voice cries out, “Prepare the way of the Lord”!
I wonder who will have the courage to create the first tracks in the desert.
I wonder what captive message will find freedom from within me to cry out.
I wonder how I will be able to make the journey to the high mountain to see God.
Come, Lord Jesus.
