Hymn/Song Information

Upon the banks of Jordan stood The great




Upon the banks of Jordan stood
The great reformer, John,
And pointed to the Lamb of God,
The long-expected one.


He loud proclaim'd the coming reign,
And told them to reform,
If thy God's favor would obtain,
And shun the gath'ring storm.


He bade all those who did repent,
Forthwith to be immers'd,
Assuring them that God had sent
The message he rehears'd.


Forsake your sins, the Baptist said,
That you may be forgiv'n;
Forsake them now, and be immers'd,
For near's the Reign of heav'n.


Thus did the man of God prepare
A people for the Lord;
To him did all the Jews repair,
Who trusted in his word.


But now the reign of God has come,
That reign of grace below,
And Jesus reigns upon God's throne,
Remission to bestow.


He bids all nations look to him,
As Prince of Life and Peace;
And offers pardon to all them
Who now accept his grace.
