1 Buried in baptism with our Lord,
We rise with him, to life restored:
Not the bare life in Adam lost,
But richer far; for more it cost.

2 Water can cleanse the flesh we own;
But Christ well knows, and Christ alone,
How dear to him our cleansing stood,
Baptized with fire, and bathed in blood.

3 His was a baptism deep indeed,
O'er feet and body, hands and head,
He in his body purged our sin:
A little water makes us clean.

4 Not but we taste his bitter cup;
But only he would drink it up,
To burn for us was his desire:
And he baptizes us with fire.

5 This fire will not consume but melt,
How soft compared with that he felt!
Thus cleansed from filth, and purged from dross,
Baptized Christian, bear the cross.

The Christian's duty, exhibited in a series of hymns, 1791
