CHRIST'S BAPTISMAL SUFFERINGS




See the eternal Son of God,
Deluged in wrath and bathed in blood;
The waters ride, the billows roll,
In quick succession o’er his soul.


This baptism of Christ the Lord,
With feeling hearts let us record;
The waters without this are vain,
A useless symbol would remain.


Unless my faith on Christ relies
Unless with him I die and rise,
Though I am plunged beneath the wave,
The rite assumes no power to save.


Not all the waters of the sea
Can wash my numerous sins away,
The crimson spots will still abide,
Till Jesus’ blood shall be applied.
