Baptismal hymn


Is it Thy will that I should be
Buried, in symbol, Lord, with Thee;
Owning Thee be this solemn sign,
Telling the world that I am Thine?

Gladly I yield obedience now;
In all things to Thy will I'd bow;
I'll follow where my Saviour led,
And humbly in His footsteps tread.

This emblematic, wat'ry grave
Shows forth His loveó Who came to save;
And as I enter it, I see
The price my Saviour paid for me.

Forth from Thy burial, Lord, I come,
For Thou hast triumphed o'er the tomb;
Thy resurrection life I shareó
My portion is no longer here.

Oh, may I count myself to be
Dead to the sins that wounded Thee,
Dead to the pleasures of this earth,
Unworthy of my heav'nly birth.

Lord Jesus, when I gaze on Thee,
And all Thy radiant glory see,
That joy will far exceed the shame
I bear on earth for Thy loved name.
