Baptism. Rom. 6. 3, 4; Acts 10. 47

J. Hart          C.M.

1
Father of heaven, we thee address;
 Obedience is our view;
 Accept us in thy Son, and bless
 The work we have to do.

2
Jesus, as water well applied
 Will make the body clean,
 So in the fountain of thy side
 Wash thou the soul from sin.

3
Celestial Dove, descend from high,
 And on the water brood;
 And with thy quickening power apply
 The water and the blood.

4
Great God, Three-One, again we call,
 And our requests renew;
 Accept in Christ, and bless withal
 The work we’ve now to do.
