Representative Text

1 Christ gave this solemn great command
Ye shall go forth in ev'ry land;
Ye, my Apostles, I do charge,
To preach my gospel word at large.

2 Disciple nations unto me:
Baptizing them that they may be
Such heirs and subjects of my grace,
As serve me in true holiness.

3 Teach them, that they observe and do,
All things I have commanded you;
Declare to them they shall be blest,
If they comply with my request.

4 Ye, who intend to be baptiz'd,
Be ye admonish'd, and advis'd;
With all your heart, repent and b'lieve;
The seal of pard'ning grace receive.

5 Ye must resolve with all your heart
To act the faithful christian's part;
Renounce the Devil world and sin,
And mortify your lusts within.

6 Be ye baptiz'd in Jesus' name,
And be ye never more asham'd:
To own and follow, Christ your Lord,
And be obedient to his word.
