S. M. “One Lord, one faith, one baptism."-Eph. iv, 5. Of one Lord will we sing,
And spread his fame abroad;
And be his name adored. 2 One living, vital faith,
Each Christian will approve;
And sweetly works by love. 3 One baptism we own;
A sacred, solemn sign
To wash away our sin.
And burial we see;
To set his children free.]
That every Christian's dead To Satan, sin, and Moses too,
Through Christ, our living Head. 6 In rising from the flood,
Saints solemnly proclaim,
The same.-Matt. ii. 15.
He has shed his precious blood,
To redeem our souls to God.
Every part and power unclean;
We despised the Saviour's blood. 3 But the Lord, by grace divine,
Brought us to abhor the crime;
In his own appointed way.
We his footsteps wish to tread;
The same.--Isa. Ixiii. 9.
JESUS, the Lord, enthroned on high,
And sweetly sing thy matchless grace. 2 Thou hast redeem'd our souls from death,
And bless'd us with a living faith;
Where sins and sorrows never come.
We now descend into the flood;
Nor will we fear nor blush with shame,
To be baptized in thy name.
And bless us with a holy fear:
And every idle thought remove. 5 Bless with true fellowship with thee, ,
When weltering in Gethsemane:
While we thy sacred rite obey.
And magnify thy sovereign name;
8. 7. 4.
Thou hast conquer'd death and hell:
May we love thee,
Monuments of grace divine;
Loved for ever,
Under our tremendous load;
Agonizing, groaning, dying,
Floods of vengeance
We are come to own thy name; Thou for us all shame disdained; We for thee would do the same:
Saviour, bless us,
We with Christ will be baptized;
And for ever,
The same.- Acts x. 47
TUNED with love divine, we sing,
We behold, and we adore. 2 Once in floods of wrath, the Lamb
Sunk, and call'd it baptism;
That his chosen might be freed. 3 [But he conquer'd when he fell,
And destroy'd the powers of hell;
4 [One with Christ, our living Head,
We were each consider'd dead;
And with him must ever reign.] 5 Now with pleasure we attend
To his wise and just command,
The same.-Rom. vi. 4.
MIGHTY King, thy power display,
May we in thy ways delight. 2 For us Jesus was baptized
In tremendous agonies:
Overwhelm'd the Lamb of God. 3 Come, ye saints, with wonder view
What the Lord has done for you;
And break in upon his soul. 4 View the swelling floods of wrath, Sink
your Saviour low as death; Grief him cover'd like a grave,
When he died your souls to save. 5 Sons of God, lift up your eyes;
See your slaughter'd Saviour rise;
