When we come to know the Savior
In the spiritual new birth,
We’re baptized into His kingdom…
To live a new life on earth.
What a beautiful encounter
When a sinner is made whole –
A work of grace by God’s Spirit…
He alone can save a soul.
Then, He instructs us to follow,
And, in water, be baptized,
The first step of obedience…
As we are immersed and rise –
A symbol of just what took place
When Christ died and rose again –
And a portrait of what He did…
When He saved us by His hand.
Praise God that He spiritually
Baptizes into His Son,
Then leads His people in water…
To proclaim what He has done.
Friend, when the Lord delivers you
From this world’s darkness and strife,
It is a joy to Be Baptized…
And walk in newness of life.
“For by one Spirit are we all baptized
into one body”
“We are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ
was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so
we also should walk in newness of life.”
(I Cor 12:13; Rom 6:4)
