Setting for the Fourth Sunday of Advent.
Lyrics: Isaiah ch.35, v.1,2

Laetabitur deserta et invia et exultabit solitudo et florebit quasi lilium.
Germinans germinabit, et exultabit laetabunda et laudans: gloria Libani data est ei, decor Carmeli et Saron, ipsi videbunt gloriam Domini, et decorem Dei nostri.

The wilderness and the solitary place shall be glad for them: and the desert shall rejoice and blossom as the rose.
It shall blossom abundantly, and rejoice even with joy and singing: the glory of Lebanon shall be given unto it, the excellency of Carmel and Sharon, they shall see the glory of the Lord, and the excellency of our God.
