CCCV. We bless the Father and the Son

1 We bless the Father and the Son,
We bless the Holy Ghost likewise;
We praise the sacred Three in One,
Who made our Souls from Sin to rise.

2 Thy sacred Precepts we receive,
O LORD we bless thy holy Name,
That thou should ever give us Leave,
And charge us to obey the same.

3 It is an Honour to obey,
Thy great commands before all Men
So we have trod the wat'ry Way,
For in the Water CHRIST hath been.

4 This ordinance O LORD we keep,
According to thy wise Design;
Lord may we walk among thy Sheep;
We seek no other fold but thine.

5 LORD guide us by thy Counsel here,
Will we this gloomy Vale have past;
Save us from Sin, save us from Fear,
And bring us to thyself at last.
