(Part of a series singing through the hymnbook I grew up with: Great Hymns of the Faith)
We bless the name of Christ, the Lord,
We bless Him for His holy Word,
Who loved to do His Father’s will,
And all His righteousness fulfill.
We follow Him with pure delight
To sanctify His sacred rite;
And thus our faith with water seal,
To prove obedience that we feel.
Baptized in God — the Father, Son,
And Holy Spirit — Three in One,
With conscience free, we rest in God,
In love and peace, thru Jesus’ blood.
By grace we “Abba, Father” cry;
By grace the Comforter comes nigh;
And for Thy grace our love shall be
Forever, only, Lord, for Thee.
