Lyrics

Proclaim, saith Christ, My wondrous grace
To all the sons of men;
He that believes, and is baptized,
Salvation shall obtain.

Let plenteous grace descend on those
Who, hoping in Thy Word,
This day have publicly declared
That Jesus is their Lord.

With cheerful feet, may they advance
And run the Christian race;
And thro’ the troubles of the way,
Find all sufficient grace.
