Ferguson George Kingsley, 1843 (🔊 pdf nwc).

Down to the sacred wave,
The Lord of life was led;
And He who came our souls to save
In Jordan bowed His head.

He taught the solemn way;
He fixed the holy rite;
He bade His ransomed ones obey,
And keep the path of light.

Blest Savior, we will tread
In Thy appointed way;
Let glory o’er these scenes be shed
And smile on us today.
