(Part of a series singing through the hymnbook I grew up with: Great Hymns of the Faith)
In Jordan’s stream the Savior stood
And like a dove the Spirit came
His heart and life to bless.
Today we gather in Thy name,
And ’tis a sacred hour;
BLess these who follow in Thy steps,
Descend in love and pow’r.
Our witness to the world around
Of Thy redeeming grace;
A witness of our love for Thee,
Our hope to see Thy face.
Nor would we cease to follow Thee,
Content with this alone;
On thru the garden, Calvary,
Thy lot shall be our own.
