Lyrics

We bless the name of Christ, the Lord,
We bless Him for His ho­ly Word,
Who loved to do His Fa­ther’s will,
And all His right­eous­ness ful­fill.

We fol­low Him with pure de­light
To sanc­ti­fy His sac­red rite;
And thus our faith with wa­ter seal,
To prove obe­di­ence that we feel.

Baptized in God—the Fa­ther, Son,
And Ho­ly Spi­rit—Three in One,
With con­science free, we rest in God,
In love and peace, through Je­sus’ blood.

By grace we Ab­ba, Fa­ther cry;
By grace the Com­fort­er comes nigh;
And for Thy grace our love shall be
Forever, on­ly, Lord, for Thee.
