BAPTISING DAY




Not instituted forms
Can wrath divine appease,
Remove contracted guilt, or give
The burdened conscience ease.


While we the rite obey,
Our trust is in the Lord;
From him our hopes of mercy rise,
By him are we restored.


Yet we our faith and love
By true obedience show,
We must not do that we may live,
But live that we may do.


Jesus the way prescribes,
‘Tis ours the path to trace;
And while we his commands fulfil,
To trust his promised grace.


Deign then, oh Lord, to bless
Thine ordinance to-day,
While we to thine adored name
Our duteous homage pay.
