Baptism. Luke 12. 50; Rom. 6. 4, 8; Col. 2. 12

W. Gadsby   S.M.

1
Jesus, our Lord and King,
Thou art our hope and trust;
Thy boundless love and grace we sing,
And of thee we will boast.

2
As sinners saved by grace,
And made alive to God
Thy righteous laws we would embrace,
And tread the heavenly road.

3
Thy wisdom did ordain
This solemn rite, to show
How thou wast plunged in wrath and pain,
To save our souls from woe.

4
We come thy name to own,
And solemnly confess,
Thou art our Life, our Joy, our Crown,
Our Strength, and Righteousness.
