214. C. M. Watts. John the Herald of Christ.
1 John was the prophet of the Lord
To go before his face;
The herald which the Prince of Peace
Sent to prepare his ways.
2 |Behold the Lamb of God,| he cries,
|That takes our guilt away;
I saw the Spirit o'er his head,
On his baptizing day.
3 |Be every vale exalted high,
Sink every mountain low;
The proud must stoop, and humble souls
Shall his salvation know.
4 |Behold the Morning Star arise,
Ye that in darkness sit;
He marks the path that leads to peace,
And guides our doubtful feet.|
