S.X. Following the Example of Christ

1 It is a very pleasant thing
To follow Christ our Lord;
And thus obey our heav'nly King,
According to his Word.

2 Down to the Water side we go;
By Christ's Example led;
Thus the same we come also,
As did our glorious Head.

3 Saviour, we bless thy wond'rous Name,
For thy Example bright;
We love to imitate the same,
As thou dost us invite.

4 We are baptiz'd as Jesus was,
His easy Yoke we bear;
And we are thus baptiz'd because
That we his Subjects are.

5 Lord may we to thy Glory live,
Teach us thy heav'nly Ways;
To us thy Holy Spirit give,
And we thy Name will praise.

6 And we thy sacred Name profess,
May we our Moments spend
In Ways of Truth and Righteousness,
Until our Lives shall end.
