Charles Coffin, 1736
On Jordan's bank the Baptist's cry|
Announces that the Lord is nigh;
Come, then, and hearken, for he brings
Glad tidings from the King of kings.
2. Then cleansed by every Christian breast
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. Lay on the sick Thy healing hand
5. All praise, eternal Son, to Thee|
Who advent sets Thy people free,
Whom, with the Father, we adore
And Holy Ghost forevermore.
