“Are You the One Who is to Come?” (preview)

Biblical Reference: Matthew 11:2-11
Tune: Oliver Holden, 1793
CORONATION (“All Hail the Power of Jesus’ Name”)

“Are you the one who is to come, or should we wait some more?”
With John in prison, he sent friends to ask this of the Lord.
With John in prison, he sent friends to ask this of the Lord.

Then Jesus told them, “Go tell John the things you see and hear:
The sick are healed, the dead are raised, God’s reign is coming near.
The sick are healed, the dead are raised, God’s reign is coming near.”

“The poor have good news brought to them! The hungry have their fill.
Though John is great, in God’s great reign, the least are greater still!
Though John is great, in God’s great reign, the least are greater still!”

O God, we gather in this place to worship and to pray;
May we your church now welcome in your joyful reign today.
May we your church now welcome in your joyful reign today.
