1 Baptized into our Saviour's death,
Our souls to sin must die;
With Christ, our Lord, we live anew,
With Christ ascend on high.
2 There by his Father's side He sits
Enthroned, divinely fair;
Yet owns Himself our Brother still,
And our forerunner there.
3 Rise from these earthly trifles, rise
On wings of faith and love;
Above, our choicest treasure lies,
And be our hearts above.
4 Let not earth's pleasures draw us down;
Lord, give us strength to rise,
And through Thy strong, attractive power,
At last to gain the prize.
