Hymn Lyrics to John 1:6-8, 15, 19-42

God Sent a Man, His Name Was John

To the tune: ST. COLUMBA (http://www.hymnary.org/hymn/CCEH/921). Based on John 1:6-8, 15, 19-42). Words: Bill Weber, 2011.

v. 1
God sent a man, his name was John,
he came to testify;
to point us to the Son of God,
and witness to the Light.

v. 2
He came a voice that cried aloud:
The Lord will soon be here!
Prepare for Him, do not be proud,
your Lord and God revere.

v. 3
This One, the everlasting Light,
He is the great I AM.
His sandals I’m unfit to tie,
this frail and sinful man.

v. 4
Behold the holy Lamb of God,
who takes our sin away.
Believe in Him the Son of God,
in Christ your Lord remain.

v. 5
O Jesus we would be with You,
with You we want to stay;
to follow You, the Lamb of God,
O change us for Your sake!


Here is the beginning of my post. And here is the rest of it.
