11. Pipe a Tune and Beat the Drum

Pipe a tune and beat the drum,
play upon the horn!
Gladly now we welcome you,
child of God, new-born.

Little bud upon the tree,
new leaf on the vine,
God has made you one of us.
Water is the sign.

Precious child of God, we pray
you will learn and grow,
nurtured by the love and faith
we have come to know.
