1 O Lord, while we confess the worth
Of this, the outward seal,
Do Thou, the truths herein set forth
To ev'ry heart reveal.

2 Death to the world we here avow,
Death to each fleshly lust;
Newness of life our calling now,
A risen Lord our trust.

3 And we, O Lord, who now partake
Of resurrection life,
With ev'ry sin, for Thy dear sake,
Would be at constant strife.

4 Baptized into the Father’s name,
We’d walk as sons of God;
Baptized in Thine, we own Thy claim
As ransomed by Thy blood.

5 Baptized into the Holy Ghost,
We’d keep His temple pure;
And make Thy grace our only boast,
And by Thy strength endure.

Amen.
