ON JORDAN’S BANK (Ride On tune)
1. On Jordan’s bank the Baptist’s cry,
Announces that the Lord is nigh,
Come then and harken, for he brings
Glad tidings from the king of kings.
2. Then cleansed be every Christian breast,
And furnished for so great a guest!
Yea let us each our hearts prepare
For Christ to come and enter there.
3. For thou art our salvation Lord,
Our refuge and our great reward;
Without thy grace our souls must fade,
And wither like a flower decayed.
4. Stretch forth thine hand to heal our sore,
And make us rise to fall no more;
Once more upon thy people shine,
And fill the world with love divine.
5. All praise, eternal son to thee
Whose advent swts thy people free
Whom with the father we adore
And Holy Ghost for ever more.
