BAPTISM AND REGENERATION




External rites no virtue claim,
To change to carnal heart;
‘Tis not their province to renew,
Our inward life impart.


Judas, and Simon Magus too,
Were plunged beneath the wave;
And yet the latter was the world’s
The former Satan’s slave.


Regeneration is a change
Wrought by almighty power,
‘Tis God’s prerogative alone,
Our nature to restore.


When we can place a humble trust
In Christ the Lord alone,
Then in his instituted rite,
His holy name we own.


Dear Lord, we now obey thy word,
And come to be baptised;
On us this honour is conferred,
By us may it be prized.


Afford thy sacred presence, Lord,
And shed abroad thy love,
That we may find increasing joy,
And all thy ways approve.
