Baptism


VERSE 1
The summer breeze made ripples on the pond
And rattled through the reeds and the willow trees beyond
Daddy in his good hat and mama in her Sunday dress
Watched with pride as I stood there in the water up to my chest
And the preacher spoke about the cleansing Blood
As I sank my toes into that cool East Texas mud

CHORUS
And it was down will the old man
Up with the new
Raised to walk in the ways of light and truth
I didn't see no angels, just a few saints on the shore
And I felt like a new-born baby
Cradled up in the arms of the Lord

VERSE 2

Amazing grace, oh how sweet the sound
There was glory in the air, there was dinner on the ground
And my sins which were many, were washed away and gone
Along with a buffalo nickel I forgot to leave at home
But that seemed like such a small, small price to pay
For the blessed peace of mind that came to me that day

TO CHORUS

This road is long and dusty,
Sometimes the soul, it must be cleansed
And I long to feel that water, rushing over me again

TO CHORUS
