Before baptism

If glorious angels do rejoice

Published in 17 hymnals

Representative Text

1 If glorious angels do rejoice
When winners turn to God,
Let us unite with cheerful voice
To spread his praise abroad.

2 When Jesus unto Jordan came,
And was baptized of John,
A voice from heaven did proclaim
'Tis my beloved Son.

3 His ministers he sent about
To preach the word of grace,
And to baptize the world throughout,
Who should his truth embrace.

4 Lord we have here before your eyes,
Some that have set their hands
To serve thee, and to be baptized
As thou didst give command.

5 Glory to God who reigns above,
For his abounding grace,
In this the token of his love
To us a guilty race.

6 Let us employ our tongues to sing
The praises of the Lord,
For calling sinners home to him
By his all-powerful word.
