1 When to the sacred font we came,
did not the rite proclaim,
that, washed from sin, and all its stains,
new creatures we became?
3 With Christ the Lord we died to sin;
with him to life we rise,
to life which, now begun on earth,
is perfect in the skies.
3 Too long enthralled to Satan's sway,
we now are slaves no more;
for Christ hath vanquished death and sin,
our freedom to restore.
