O crucified triumphant Lord




O crucified, triumphant Lord!
Thy sceptre and thy cross we own;
And, taught by thine apostle's word,
Repose our faith on thee alone.


The sign of faith ordained by thee
We thy confessors scorn to shun;
All men our fellowship shall see,
Our Lord, our faith, our symbol, one.


Not only for ourselves we claim
The blessings of thy brotherhood;
The promise to our children came,
Theirs is the water and the blood.


Who hath these little ones despised?
Or those that brought
them dare condemn?
Or who, in Jesu's name baptized,
Would blush to put
that name on them?


Let sprinkled water seal them now
The heirs of all-redeeming grace;
The truth thus symboled on the brow
Thy Spirit on the heart shall trace!


Lord, spare them
till their lives and tongues
The heart-taught truth
have well confessed,
That who to us, to thee belongs,
Early believing, ever blessed.
