BAPTISM OF CHRIST




With ardent zeal inspired,
Lo, the Redeemer came,
From Galilee to be baptised
In Jordan’s flowing stream.


‘This it behoveth me
To do my Father’s will,
And thus in his appointed way,
All righteousness fulfil.’


The Spirit, like a dove,
Honours the mystic rite;
And God proclaims him from above,
The Son of his delight.


‘Tis thus our glorious Head,
Instructs us to obey;
The roughest paths we safely tread,
If he but leads the way.


Buried with Christ, we now
To a new life arise;
A life of holiness below,
Of bliss above the skies.
