1. By what amazing Ways,
The Lord vouchafes t'explain
The Wonders of his Sov'reign Grace
Towards the Sons of Men!

2 He shews us first, how foul
Our Natur's made by Sin;
Then teaches the believing Soul
The way to make it clean.

What need we've all to cleanse;
Then shews that Christ to all God's Heirs
Can Purity dispense.

4 Water the Body laves:
And, if 'tis done by Faith,
The Blood of Jesus surely saves
The sinful Soul from Death.

5 Water no Man denies:
But, Brethren, rest not there:
'Tis Faith in Christ that justifies
And makes the conscience clear.

6 Baptiz'd into his Death,
We rise to Life divine.
The Holy Spirit works the Faith;
And Water is the Sign.
