8100. Prepare The Way

1 The King, the King is coming,
Prepare, prepare the way.
Oh, pray, repent, endeavor
To serve Him while you may.
Persist in every effort
To make the pathway clear;
Advance and bear His banner,
The King Himself is near.

Refrain:
Prepare the way for Jesus,
Cast out each hindering thing,
Let every heart be ready
To hail the Savior, King.

2 Resist, resist the tempter,
As soldiers true, endure;
Trust God, and hope forever,
His promises are sure.
Entreat the lost and careless
To open wide the heart,
To watch for Jesus’ coming,
Nor let the Lord depart. [Refrain]

3 Arouse, arouse the sleeper,
The risen Lord to greet,
That all may gladly welcome
The coming of His feet.
Yield all to your Redeemer,
Put down all sin and pride,
Prepare the way for Jesus,
The Savior crucified. [Refrain]
