1 At Jesus' feet our infant sweet
We lay with all sin's stain,
That renders him/her for haev'n unmeet
Until he's/she's born again.
We here embrace God's mighty grace
In this baptismal wave,
Nor shall the world our trust efface--
For "Baptism now doth save."
2 We cannot see the Holy Three
Concealed the font within,
Mere water seems the mystery
That cleases us from sin;
But everlasting gifts now dwell
Through God's Word in this flood;
Faith speaks, though reason may rebel:
"This flood is Jesus' blood!"
