Hymn/Song Information

GOD'S MESSENGER




Herald, in the wilderness,
Breaking up the road,
Sinking mountains, raising plains,
For the path of God;


Prophet, to the multitudes
Calling to repent,
In the way of righteousness
Unto Israel sent;


Messenger, Godís chosen one
Foremost to proclaim,
Proffered titles passing by,
Pointing to the Lamb.


Captive, for the word of truth
Boldly witnessing;
Then in Herodís dungeon cave,
Faint and languishing;


Martyr, sacrificed to sin
At that feast of shame;
As his life foreshowed the Lord,
In his death the sameó


Holy Jesus, when He heard,
Went apart to pray:
Thus may we our lesson take
From his saint today.
