FOLLOWING THE LORD FULLY




Kindest Saviour, we adore thee,
And thy sacred name confess;
While we now appear before thee,
Condescend our souls to bless:
May thy Spirit and thy word,
Inward peace and joy afford.


Let us now with zeal and fervour,
Faithful own thy righteous cause,
Bless thee as our kind preserver,
Cheerful keep thy holy laws:
Let nor words but actions show,
What to sovereign grace we owe.


In this rite by heaven appointed,
We may wash the body clean,
Yet may still be unacquainted
With the malady of sin:
Grant, oh Lord, that with the sign,
We may feel thy power divine.


Outward forms are unavailing,
To the soul estranged from God;
They can ne’er afford him healing,
While he treads the downward road:
But when sanctified by grace,
We in them can Jesus trace.


Now we follow thine example,
Promised help do thou afford;
Teach us on the world to trample,
Cleaving still to thee the Lord:
Hence depart with cheerful voice,
In thy ways may we rejoice.
