Hymn 164
1. Lo! on the water's brink we stand,
To do the Father's will,
To be baptised by his command,
And thus the word fulfil.

2. O Lord, we've sinned, but we repent,
And put our sins away,
With joy receive the message sent
In this the latter day.

3. Thou wilt accept our humble prayer,
And all our sins forgive;
For Jesus is the sinner's friend,
He died that we might live.

4. We lay our sinful bodies now
Beneath the opening wave,
Then rise to life divinely new,
As from the bursting grave.

5. So when the trump of God shall blow,
The saints shall burst the tomb,
Immortal beauty crown their brow
With an immortal bloom.
