Representative Text

1 In such a grave as this
The meek Redeemr lay,
When He our souls to seek and save
Learn'd humbly to obey.

2 See how the spotless Lamb
Descends into the stream!
And teaches sinners not to scorn
What him so well became.

3 His body sanctifies
The salutary flood,
And teachs us to plung our souls
I' th' fountian of his blood.

4 Oh! Sinners wash away,
Your sins of crimson dye,
Bury'd with him your sinns shall all,
In dark oblivion lie.

5 Rise and ascend with him,
A heavenly life to lead,
Who came to rescue guilty men,
from regions of the dead.
