"The Kingdom of Heaven Is at Hand" as written by and Lew Dewitt....
Jesus walked that lonesome road to preach the Gospel news
But someone walked ahead to pave the way
One who felt he wasn't fit to carry Jesus' shoes
A woolly man adorned in disarray

A man who got his feet wet for the glory of the Lord
John the Baptist was a chosen man
His voice called from the wilderness a warning and the word
The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand

He must have made an awesome sight
In clothes of camel's hair
Around his waist he wore a leather band
Preachin' and baptizin' as he wandered here and there
The Kingdom Of Heaven is at hand
The Kingdom Of Heaven is at hand

One day, Jesus came to Jordan's banks to be baptized
John the Baptist tried to turn Him down
Lord, I feel inadequate, and then he emphasized
It should be the other way around

But John was soon convinced and he consented by and by
It must be done to fulfill God's command
'Cause God was lookin' down on him, and time was drawin' nigh
The Kingdom Of Heaven is at hand

Livin' on wild honey and grasshoppers and the word
He went to Jordan lookin' lean and tan
Preachin' and baptizin', and the people came and heard
The Kingdom Of Heaven is at hand
The Kingdom Of Heaven is at hand
The Kingdom Of Heaven is at hand
