BAPTISING DAY




Jesus, we thy followers are,
In the way to Canaanís land,
Let us all thy blessing share,
While obeying thy command:
Of our duty now apprised,
We are come to be baptised.


Let thy laws be our delight,
Humble homage may we pay,
All thy precepts, Lord, are right,
Why should creatures disobey?
We thy will have recognised,
And are come to be baptised.


Thou the great example gave,
(Worthy our supreme regard)
When immersed in Jordanís wave,
We to follow are prepared:
As commanded and advised,
We are come to be baptised.


Sacred Spirit, heavenly dove,
Grant the substance with the sign,
While the outward rite we prove,
Deign within our souls to shine:
May we now with one accord,
Own subjection to the Lord.
