Baptized into your name most holy


Baptized into your name most holy,
O Father, Son, and Holy Ghost,
I claim a place, though weak and lowly,
among your seed, your chosen host.
Buried with Christ and dead to sin,
your Spirit now shall live within.

My loving Father, here you take me
to be henceforth your child and heir;
my faithful Saviour, now you make me
the fruit of all your sorrows share;
my Comforter will strengthen me
when darkest clouds around I see.

My faithful God, who fails me never;
your covenant surely will abide.
O cast me not away for ever,
should I transgress it on my side!
Have mercy when I come defiled;
forgive, lift up, restore your child.

All that I am and love most dearly,
to you I offer now the whole.
o let me make my vows sincerely,
take full possession of my soul!
Let nothing that I am or own
serve any will but yours alone.
