1 Come, Father, Son, and Holy Ghost,
Honor the means enjoin'd by Thee,
Make good our Apostolic boast,
And own thy glorious ministry.

2 We now thy promis'd presence claim,
Sent to disciple all mankind,
Sent to baptize into thy name,
We now thy promis'd presence find.

3 Father in these reveal thy son,
In these for whom we seek thy face,
Thy pard'ning mercy now make known,
In this, thy sacred means of grace.

4 Jesus, with us Thou always art,
Confirm thy heav'nly washing now,
And through this sacrament impart
The gifts of heav'n, eternal life.

5 Spirit divine, descend from high,
Baptizer of our spirits Thou.
The sacramental seal apply,
And witness with the water now.

6 Oh! that the souls baptiz'd herein,
May now thy truth and mercy feel:
Redeemer! wash away their sin,--
Come, Holy Ghost, their pardon seal!
