761. 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 through 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.
