To follow Christ the 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 they glory live,
Teach us thy heav'nly ways;
To us thy holy Spirit gives,
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. Languages: English
