Full Text

1 Father, Son, and Holy Spirit,
I'm baptized in Thy dear name;
In the seed Thou dost inherit,
With the people Thou dost claim,
I am reckoned;
I am reckoned;
And for me the Savior came.

2 Thou receivest me, O Father,
As a child and heir of Thine;
Jesus, Thou who diedst, yea, rather
Ever livest, Thou art mine.
Thou, O Spirit,
Thou, O Spirit,
Art my Guide, my Light divine.

3 I have pledged, and would not falter,
Truth, obedience, love to Thee;
I have vowed upon Thine altar,
Ever Thine alone to be,
And forever,
And forever,
Sin and all its lusts to flee.

4 Gracious God, all Thou hast spoken
In this cov'nant shall take place;
But if I, alas! have broken
These my vows, hide not Thy face;
And from falling,
And from falling,
O restore me by Thy grace!

5 Lord, to Thee I now surrender
All I have, and all I am:
Make my heart more true and tender,
Glorify in me Thy name;
Let obedience:
Let obedience:
To Thy will be all my aim.

6 Help me in this high endeavor,
Father, Son, and Holy Ghost!
Bind my heart to Thee forever,
Till I join the heavenly host:
Living, dying,
Living, dying,
Let me make in Thee my boast.

During his illness he turned again to his schoolbooks; the desire for learning reawoke; and on his recovery, early in 1708, he entered the Latin school of the Orphanage at Halle (Glaucha). On Oct. 27, 1712, he matriculated at the University of Halle as a student of medicine, but soon turned his attention to theology. He became specially interested in the study of the Old Testament under J. H. Michaelis.
