John the Messenger, Robert A Sieczkiewicz

Why is it that you need to question me?
Can’t you see clear with your eyes who I be?
It is I who His message do carry,
His final action shall set us all free.

Me! Not worthy His sandal to untie.
Making the way straight for Him, I do cry.
Baptism of water is what I apply,
And soon for Him I shall eagerly die.

He now walks among us in open view,
Brings the Holy Spirit for all of you.
All these words I speak to you are so true,
By your faces I see you haven’t a clue.

Make the way straight for the coming of the Lord.
He comes with message of love, not the sword!
