When we to cleansing waters came

When we to cleansing waters came

Tune: BELGRAVE (Horsley)
Published in 1 hymnal

Representative Text

1 When we to cleansing waters came,
baptized in Jesus' name,
did not the rite of death to sin
newness of life proclaim?

2 Too long enthralled to Satan's sway,
we now are slaves no more;
for Christ has vanquished death and sin
our freedom to restore.

3 With Christ the Lord we died to sin,
with him to life we rise;
in Christ's new life we now can walk,
in him attain the prize.
