On Jordan's bank the Baptist's cry

Author: Charles Coffin (1676-1749); John Chandler (1806-1876) Meter: Appears in 223 hymnals Scripture: Luke 3:1-18 Lyrics: 1 On Jordan's bank the Baptist's cry announces that the Lord is nigh; awake and hearken for he brings glad tidings of the King of kings. 2 Then cleansed be every heart from sin; make straight the way for God within; prepare we in our hearts a home, where such a mighty Guest may come. 3 For you are our salvation, Lord, our refuge and our great reward; without your grace we waste away, like flowers that wither and decay. 4 Stretch out your hand, to heal our sore, and make us rise to fall no more; once more upon your people shine, and fill the world with love divine. 5 All praise to you, eternal Son, whose advent has our freedom won, whom with the Father we adore, and Holy Spirit, evermore.

When John Baptized by Jordan's River

Author: Timothy Dudley-Smith, 1926- Meter: D Appears in 16 hymnals Scripture: Luke 3:2-17 Lyrics: 1 When John baptized by Jordan's river in faith and hope the people came, that John and Jordan might deliver their troubled souls from sin and shame. They came to seek a new beginning, the human spirit's ageless quest, repentance and an end of sinning, renouncing every wrong confessed. 2 There as the Lord, baptized and praying, rose from the stream the sinless One, a voice was heard from heaven saying, "This is my own beloved Son." There as the Father's word was spoken, not in the power of wind and flame, but of his love and peace the token, seen as a dove, the Spirit came. 3 O Son of Man, our nature sharing, in whose obedience all are blest, Saviour, our sins and sorrows bearing, hear us and grant us this request: daily to grow, by grace defended, filled with the Spirit from above; in Christ baptized, beloved, befriended, children of God in peace and love.

Wild and Lone the Prophet's Voice

Author: Carl P. Daw, Jr. Meter: D Appears in 8 hymnals Scripture: Luke 3:1-22 Lyrics: 1 Wild and lone the prophet's voice echoes through the desert still, calling us to make a choice, bidding us to do God's will: "Turn from sin and be baptized; cleanse your heart and mind and soul. Quitting all the sin you prized, yield your life to God's control. 2 "Bear the fruit repentance sows: lives of justice, truth, and love. Trust no other claim than those; set your heart on things above. Soon the Lord will come in power, burning clean the threshing floor: then will flames the chaff devour; wheat alone shall fill God's store." 3 With such preaching stark and bold John proclaimed salvation near, and his timeless warnings hold words of hope to all who hear. So we dare to journey on, led by faith through ways untrod, till we come at last like John - to behold the Lamb of God.
