529. Baptized into Your Name Most Holy

1 Baptized into your name most holy,
O Father, Son, and Holy Ghost,
I claim a place, though weak and lowly,
among your seed, your chosen host.
Buried with Christ, and dead to sin,
I have your Spirit now within.

2 My loving Father, you have made me
to be your honored child and heir;
my faithful Savior, here you make me
the fruit of all your sorrow share;
O Holy Ghost, you comfort me
though threat'ning clouds around I see.

3 O faithful God, you never fail me;
your cov'nant surely will abide;
let not eternal death assail me
should I transgress it on my side.
Have mercy when I come defiled;
forgive, restore, lift up your child.

4 All that I am and love most dearly,
receive it all, O Lord, from me.
Oh, let me make my vows sincerely,
and help me your own child to be!
Let nothing that I am or own
serve any will but yours alone.
