In Preparation for the Lord’s Day: On Jordan’s Banks


On Jordan’s Banks the Baptist’s Cry
PUER NOBIS

image

On Jordan’s bank the Baptist’s cry
announces that the Lord is nigh;
awake and hearken, for he brings
glad tidings from the King of kings.

Then cleansed be every breast from sin;
make straight the way for God within;
prepare we in our hearts a home,
where such a mighty Guest may come.

For Thou art our salvation, Lord,
our Refuge and our great Reward;
without Thy grace we waste away,
like flow’rs that wither and decay.

To heal the sick stretch out Thine hand,
and bid the fallen sinner stand;
shine forth, and let Thy light restore
earth’s own true loveliness once more.

All praise, Eternal Son, to Thee
whose Advent sets Thy people free;
whom with the Father we adore,
and Holy Ghost for evermore.

Hymns to the Living God (Religious Affections Ministries, 2017).

The current hymnal for this series is Hymns to the Living God, published by Religious Affections Ministries. This is such a good hymnal that I’m pretty sure I could happily post every hymn it contains, but I’ll be limiting selections to hymns I have never posted here before, especially those unfamiliar to me (of which there are many). For more information and to purchase this hymnal, visit Religious Affections Ministries.
