Long ago in another
Isaiah preached salvation.
Heaven comes near for all today
Who turn to Christs liberation.
A wild man came
He called his home the wilderness.
Prepare the way of Him God sent.
Make straight the path of all ages.
People came out
to wash away
The filth of their acknowledged sins.
He is nearer than you can say
Who will cleanse of all transgressions.
Produce the fruits
Religion cannot bear you up.
God will pass down His high sentence
In keeping with a faithless crop.
was of water;
Christ christens with Spirit and fire.
He is the way to His Father;
For those souls who truly aspire.
