Hymn Text

1 On Jordan’s banks the Baptist’s cry
    Announces that the Lord is nigh;
    Awake and hearken, for he brings
    Glad tidings of the King of kings!

2 Then cleansed be ev'ry life from sin;
    Make straight the way for God within,
    And let us all our hearts prepare
    For Christ to come and enter there.

3 We hail you as our Savior, Lord,
    Our refuge, and our great reward;
    Without your grace we waste away
    Like flow'rs that wither and decay.

4 Stretch forth your hand, our health restore,
    And make us rise to fall no more;
    Oh, let your face upon us shine,
    And fill the world with love divine.

5 All praise to you, eternal Son,
   Whose advent has our freedom won,
   Whom with the Father we adore,
   And Holy Spirit, evermore.
