Hymn/Song Information

BY THE WATER SIDE




John fulfilled his sacred mission,
And baptised in Jordanís stream;
Sinners who avowed contrition,
To the holy prophet came;
Yielding to the sacred rite,
With submission ad delight.


We professing faith in Jesus,
Now before the water stand,
Waiting for the Lord to bless us,
While obeying his command:
May we feel his power divine,
Have the substance with the sign.


All our hope and expectation
From his grace and mercy spring,
Jesus is our great salvation,
Jesus is our Lord and King:
We in Zionís courts will raise
Songs to our Delivererís praise.


Plunged beneath the yielding waters,
We shall soon from thence ascend,
Happy sons and happy daughters,
Who to wisdomís voice attend:
Such and such alone shall find
Satisfaction to the mind.


Jesus oh thou mighty Saviour,
Thine assistance we implore;
Grant us tokens of thy favour,
let us feel thy quickening power:
Be our leader and our head,
Now in dutyís path we tread.
