Buried with Jesus

Representative Text

1 Down into the flowing river,
Lo, the Lamb of God we see;
There He speaks in clear example:
“Take the cross and follow Me.”

Gently buried with my Savior,
Let me sink beneath the wave;
Crucified to earth forever,
Hence alone to God I live.

2 Now the sacred waters cover
O’er the holy Son of God;
Thus He washed me in that fountain
Of His sin-atoning blood. [Refrain]

3 Crucified with my Redeemer,
Now I sink into the grave;
I am dead to sin forever,
By the life of God I live. [Refrain]

4 Here I witness a confession,
As I merge from human sight
In the tomb of yielding water,
That the blood has made me white. [Refrain]

5 Oh, how sweet to follow Jesus
In this ordinance, to show
That we’re cleansed in life’s pure river,
Even whiter than the snow. [Refrain]
