Representative Text

1 How blest the hour when first we gave
Our guilty souls to thee, O God!
A cheerful sacrifice of love,
Bought with the Saviour's precious blood.

2 How blest the vows we here record!
How blest the grace we here receive!
Buried to rise with Christ our Lord,
New lives of holiness to live.

3 How blest the solemn rite that seals
Our death to sin, our guilt forgiven!
How blest the emblem that reveals
God reconciled, and peace with heaven!

4 Thus through the emblematic grave
The glorious suffering Saviour trod;
Thou art our Pattern, through the wave
We follow thee, blest Son of God.
