Motivated by reading the gospel accounts of the life of John the Baptist, with some helpful insights from Bruce Milne's commentary on John.
Don't look at me, there's nothing to see
I'm just a voice in the wilderness, crying "Get yourself ready"
Don't stick with me, I've got nothing more to say
I'm just a friend of the bridegroom – it's not my wedding day
Don't trust in me, but listen to God's word
I saw a dove descend from heaven, and this is what I heard
"This is my Son, my beloved One"
Listen to him, listen to him
This is the One, God's Anointed One,
Come follow him, come follow him
Come and repent, and be baptised with fire
Don't be content drinking water, when you could be drinking wine
Come to the light, come and see his glory
Don't miss the most important person, in the whole of history
Come and believe, grasp the promise of new life
This is the one the prophets spoke about; he’s right before your eyes
This is the Lamb, taking the sin of man
Have faith in him, have faith in him
This is the Word, creator of the world
Come worship him, come worship him
The mission of my life's complete:
I've seen and testified
Now my ministry can fade away
But let him be glorified
