On Jordan's Bank

Author: Charles Coffin; John Chandler Hymnal: Voices United #20 (1996) Meter: 8.8.8.8 Topics: Biblical Characters John, the Baptist; Biblical Places Jordan First Line: On Jordan's bank the Baptist's cry Lyrics: 1 On Jordan's bank the Baptist's cry announces that the Lamb is nigh; awake and hearken, for he brings glad tidings of the King of Kings. 2 Then cleansed be every breast from sin; make straight the way for God within; and let each heart prepare a home where such a mighty guest may come. 3 In you, we find abundant life, our refuge in the midst of strife; without your grace we waste away like flowers that wither and decay. 4 Stretch forth your hand, our health restore, and help us rise to fall no more. O 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; and praise to God whom we adore, with Holy Spirit evermore.
