     15 And as the people were in expectation, and all men mused in their hearts of John, whether he were the Christ, or not; 16 John answered, saying unto them all, I indeed baptize you with water; but one mightier than I cometh, the latchet of whose shoes I am not worthy to unloose: he shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost and with fire: 17 Whose fan is in his hand, and he will thoroughly purge his floor, and will gather the wheat into his garner; but the chaff he will burn with fire unquenchable.(KJV)

1. Come, Thou precious Ransom, come, 
Only Hope for sinful mortals! 
Come, O Savior of the world! 
Open are to Thee all portals. 
Come, Thy beauty let us see; 
Anxiously we wait for Thee. 

2. Enter now my waiting heart, 
Glorious King and Lord most holy. 
Dwell in me and ne’er depart, 
Though I am but poor and lowly. 
Ah, what riches will be mine 
When Thou art my Guest Divine! 

3. My hosannas and my palms 
Graciously receive, I pray Thee; 
Evermore, as best I can, 
Savior, I will homage pay Thee, 
And in faith I will embrace, 
Lord, Thy merit through Thy grace. 

4. Hail, hosanna, David’s Son! 
Help, Lord, hear our supplication! 
Let Thy kingdom, scepter, crown, 
Bring us blessing and salvation, 
That forever we may sing: 
Hail, hosanna! to our King.
