Hymn/Song Information

John was the prophet of the Lord To go




John was the prophet of the Lord,
To go before his face;
The herald which the Prince of Peace
Sent to prepare his ways.


He makes the great salvation known,
He speaks of pardoned sins;
While grace divine, and heavenly love,
In its own glory shines.


“Behold the Lamb of God,” he cries,
“That takes our guilt away:
I saw the Spirit o’er his head
On his baptizing day.


“Be every vale exalted high,
Sink every mountain low;
The proud must stoop, and humble souls
Shall his salvation know.


“The heathen realm with Israel’s land
Shall join in sweet accord;
And all that’s born of man shall see
The glory of the Lord.


“Behold the Morning Star arise,
Ye that in darkness sit;
He marks the path that leads to peace,
And guides our doubtful feet.”
