Arise and be baptized

Representative Text

1 Arise and be baptized,
And wash thy sins away;
Thy league with God be solemnized,
Thy faith confessed to-day.

2 No more thine own, but Christ's;
With all the saints of old,
Apostles, seers, evangelists,
And martyr throngs enrolled.

3 O bright the conqueror's crown,
The song of triumph sweet,
When faith casts every trophy down
At our Redeemer's feet.

Amen.
