Lyrics from A Collection of Sacred Hymns, for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, 1841

Hymn 173
1. Come, all you sons of God, and view
Your bleeding Savior's love to you:
Behold him sink with heavy woes,
And give his life to save his foes!

2. Here in the pure baptismal wave,
You see the emblem of his grace;
Come all who would his laws obey,
And view the place where Jesus lay.

3. When you ascend above the flood,
Then call to mind your rising Lord:
You saints, lift up your joyful eyes;
Exulting see your Savior rise.

4. You too are buried with your Lord,
Who in the water own his word;
And joyfully receive therein,
Remission of your former sin.

5. Ascending from the stream, behold
An emblem of your life restored:
Live unto him who died for you,
And all his just commandments do.
