1 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.
2 We follow him with pure delight
To sanctify His sacred rite;
And thus our faith with water seal,
To prove obedience that we feel.
3 Baptized in God--the Father, Son,
And Holy Spirit—-Three-in-One,
With conscience free, we rest in God,
In love and peace, through Jesus' blood.
4 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.
