Are we baptized in Christ our Lord

Are we baptized in Christ our Lord

Author: Paul Henkel
Published in 3 hymnals

Representative Text

1 Are we baptiz'd in Christ our Lord,
And buried in his death;
We are from death to life restor'd
And live in him by faith.

2 Is Jesus raised from the dead
By his Almighty pow'r.
As members of that living head,
We live to sin no more.

3 We live, but not to sin enslav'd,
As once it was our case;
From Satan's power we are sav'd,
By Jesus and his grace.

4 Our base affections crucified
And nail'd unto the tree;
And Christ will ever be enjoy'd,
Our life and liberty.

5 We are from day to day renew'd,
And made in grace to grow:
Into the image of our God,
And are his children too.

6 Do we thus imitate him here,
Whilst here on earth we live;
What glories will the Saviour there,
Unto his servants give.
