1 When souls draw near the holy wave,
The Triune God draws near to save;
When water flows in His great name,
He comes to free from guilt and shame.
2 The water used at God's behest
Must yield our souls the promised rest;
For where a solemn pledge He gives
Whoe'er in faith accepts it, lives.
3 Let us but bid our hearts be still,
Nor rise in doubt against His will;
The power that made us a breath
By simplest means can save from death.
4 With grateful hearts His praise we sing,
To whom in life and death we cling,
Still trusting in the means He gave
Through faith our sinful souls to save.
