THE ADMINISTRATION




Look down with kind regard,
On these thy servants, Lord;
With joy have they received,
And loved thy holy word:
They fear it much,
Enjoy it more,
Since they have felt
Its saving power.


And now at thy command,
They come to be baptised;
A rite by thee ordained,
And not by man devised:
Oh may it, Lord,
To them be blessed,
Each grace divine
Be now increased.


This sacred rite to own,
Descend, celestial Dove;
Expand thy balmy wings,
And on these waters move,
That they may be
A grave to sin,
And these arise
To life divine.


May they from hence depart,
Inflamed with holy zeal,
And cheerfully perform
Their heavenly Fatherís will:
From fear released,
And guilty shame,
May they exalt
His glorious name.
