Representative Text

1 See how the willing converts trace,
The path their great Redeemer tord;
And follow thro' his liquid grave,
The meek, the lovely son of God!

2 Hee they renounce their former deeds;
And to a heav'nly life aspire,
their rags for glorious robes exchang'd
They shine in clean and bright attire.

3 O sacred Rite! by thee the name,
Of Jesus we to won begin:
This is our resurrection pledge,
Pledge oft he pardon of our sin.

4 Glory to God on high be given,
Who shews his grace to sinful men;
Let Saints on earth and host in heav'n,
In concert join their loud amen.
