Dear Friend of Hymnary,

But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

1. P
Akve mi baptos vin laŭ la moro,
kiel Jesuon baptis Johan':
Signo de pento, kredodeklaro,
nasko-sigelo de la Kristan'.

2. K
Venu, kolombo, Dia Spirito,
brilu la akvo, tuŝu vi ĝin!
Ni el ĉielo aŭdu la voĉon:
"Jen mi vin amas, mia filin'!"

Venu, kolombo, Dia Spirito,
tuŝu la akvon per via bril'!
Ni el ĉielo aŭdu la voĉon:
"Jen mi vin amas, ho mia fil'!"

3. P
Ĉu vi deziras sekvi Jesuon,
Vivi laŭeble laŭ lia vort',
Ami la homojn, porti la krucon,
Morti, kaj vivi spite al mort'?

4. B
Jes, mi deziras sekvi Jesuon,
klare lin montri en mia mond',
enpraktikigi lian instruon,
jesi lin per tut-viva respond'.

5. P
Do en la nomo de nia Patro
Dume Pastranto
baptas Baptaton.
kaj en la nomo de la Diid',
kaj nome de l' Spirito plej Sankta,
mi nun vin baptas laŭ Dia gvid'.

6. K
Ni vian bapton ĝoje atestas;
Gloras ni Dion, unu en tri;
Vian fratiĝon gaje ni festas:
Vin bonvenigas la eklezi'!

Notes: P = Priest, i.e. baptizer; K = Congregation; B = Baptismal candidate
In verse two, the first version is used when the candidate is female, the second when the candidate is male.
