BAPTISM A TEST OF OBEDIENCE




‘Buried with Christ,’ the scripture saith,
Is but a rite to show our faith,
In Christ our living head;
And ‘tis by faith again we rise,
Dependant on his sacrifice,
To raise us from the dead.


His bright example kept in view,
Instructs and animates us too,
And shows our feet the way;
Thus when we sink beneath the stream,
We tell the world we love his name,
And his commands obey.


But we can only wash the flesh,
‘Tis grace that forms the heart afresh,
This rite is but the sign;
Whilst water makes the body clean,
His Spirit purifies from sin,
And makes our graces shine.
