The words of the original anthem are:
This is the record of John, when the Jews sent priests and Levites from Jerusalem
to ask him, Who art thou?
And he confessed, and denied not, and said plainly,
I am not the Christ.
[tutti] And they asked him, What art thou then?
Art thou Elias? And he said, I am not.
Art thou that Prophet?
And he answered, No.
Then said they unto him, What art thou?
that we may give an answer unto them that sent us.
What say’st thou of thyself?
And he said, I am the voice of him that crieth in the wilderness,
"Make straight the way of the Lord".
(John 1 vv. 19–23)
