1 If glorious Angels do rejoice
When Sinners turn to God,
Let us unite with chearful Voice
To spread his Praise abroad.
2 When Jesus unto Jordan came,
And was baptiz'd of John,
A Voice from Heaven did proclaim
'Tis my beloved Son.
3 His Ministers he sent about
To preach the Word of Grace,
And to baptize the World throughout,
Who should his Truth embrace.
4 Lord we have here before your Eyes,
Some that have set their Hands
To serve thee, and to be baptiz'd
As thou didst give Command.
5 Glory to God who reigns above,
For his abounding Grace,
In this the Token of his Love
To us a guilty Race.
6 Let us employ our Tongues to sing
The Praises of the Lord,
For calling Sinners home to him
By his all-powerful Word.
