255. We Bless the Name of Christ, the Lord

1 We bless the name of Christ the Lord,
We bless Him for His holy Word,
Who loved to do His Father’s will,
And all His righteousness fulfill.

2 We follow him with pure delight
To sanctify His sacred rite;
And thus our faith with water seal
To prove obedience that we feel.

3 Baptized in God - the Father, Son,
And Holy Spirit - Three-in-One,
With conscience free, we rest in God,
In love and peace, thro' Jesus’ blood.

4 By grace we “Abba, Father” cry;
By grace the Comforter comes nigh;
And for Thy grace our love shall be
Forever, only, Lord, for Thee.
