1 O! how doth God our souls surprise,
When he our conscience doth baptize
Into the holy Nature;
Where, free from all Offence and blame,
We now possess in Christ the Lamb,
The Fulness of his Stature.
And shall ever,
In our Saviour,
With him to this Grace elected.
2 Free from all consciousness of Sin,
We live where none can enter in;
This when in Heart believed;
Our Conscience answers towards God,
As free from Sin, thro' Jesu's Blood,
Nor can we be deceived:
In one Body,
White and ruddy,
In the Father's Glory seated.
3 Salvation now in us is wrought;
Now is there one uneasy Thought,
By which our Peace is spoiled:
Baptiz'd into the Saviour's Name,
Our Conscience answers to the Lamb,
Who ne'er can be defiled.
From what vexes
We are fully
In and as in Jesus holy.
