Baptism

Father of Heav'n, we thee address

Published in 7 hymnals

Representative Text

1 Father of heaven, we thee address
(Obedience is our view)
Accept us in thy son; and bless
The work we have to do.

2 Jesus, as water well applied
Will make the body clean;
So in the fountain of thy side
Wash thou the soul from sin.

3 Celestial dove, descend from high,
And on the water brood;
And with thy quickening power apply
The water and the blood.

4 Great God, Three-One, again we call,
And our requests renew,
Accept in Christ; and bless withal
The work we've now to do.
