Prepare yourselves for He is near,
the One who I have no business 
unfastening the strap of His sandal.
No scandal does He reflect. He is perfect.
It is He that should be baptizing me,
that a lowly sinner should be a winner 
of His holy blessing. The Jordan River
flows and I quiver at His mere presence.
He is the essence of all that is Holy.
That is the way of the Lord.
Prepare yourself.
Prepare ye!
