3 Baptized into the Father's name,
4 Baptized into the Holy Ghost,
696 Thy vows are upon me, O God.—Ps.
WE gave ourselves to Thee, O Lord,
Content to be despised;
When we, obedient to Thy word,
2 Then we avowed that we would die
3 Oh! never may our souls forget
4 Let not those holy joys be lost,
5 And these who own their Lord to-day,
697 Blessed be the Lord, even the God
of our salvation.-Ps. 68, 19.
WHO can forbear to sing,
Who can refuse to praise,
When Zion's high celestial King
Whengrace, and truth,and justice meet.
And peace unites them all.
3 When heaven's opening gates
Invite the pilgrims' feet;..
And Jesus, at their entrance, waits
When sovereign, rich, redeeming grace, Invites our tongues to sing!
698 When they heard it, they glorified
God.-Acts 21, 20.
THERE'S joy in heaven, and joy on
To see desponding souls rejoice,
2 Come, saints, and hear what God has done,
Is a reviving sound;
O may it oft refresh our souls,
3 Often, O Sovereign Lord, renew
That Jesus here may see His seed,
4 Great God! this work is all Thy own;
699 Buried with Him in baptism.--Col.
Ahine open grave, we stand,
ROUND Thy grave, Lord Jesus,
With hearts all full of gladness,
To keep Thy blest command:
2 Lord Jesus! we remember
3 But now Thou art arisen!
Once Thou for sin hast suffered,
And clothe us with Thy risen life,
So freed from the old nature,
700 Let us join ourselves to the Lord in
a perpetual covenant.-Jer. 50, 5.
OME ye that fear the Lord,
Come, and with heart and hand record.
2 Vow to be His alone,
Who bought you with a price;
Now render back to God His own,
Here to His altar brought,
Your covenant renew,
To be in word, and deed, and thought,
Faithful to Him and true.
And true and faithful He
To you will ever prove,
Though hills were swept into the sea,
Then be His law our choice,
The joy of young and old,
As sheep that hear their shepherd's
And follow to the fold.
So shall His staff and rod,
Conduct us and defend;
God is a covenant-keeping God,
701 Come in, thou blessed of the Lord.
-Gen. 24, 31.
OME in, thou blessed of the Lord,
We welcome thee with warm accord,
2 The hand of fellowship, the heart
Leaving the world, thou dost but part
3 In weal or woe, in joy or care,
4 Come with us, we will do thee good,
Stand but in Him, as those have stood
5 And when, by turns, we pass away,
702 We also should walk in newness of
life.-Rom. 6, 4.
CHILDREN of the King of grace,
As from earth to heaven ye go, Your Redeemer's footsteps trace, Follow Him in all ye do.
2 His sweet presenée you will find Shining on you as ye go;
Cast your fears and cares behind,
3 You are buried with the Lord,
4 Hear the voice that speaks from heaThis is My appointed way,
You, whose sins He has forgiven,
5 Mighty Saviour, we obey
Thy Divine commanding voice;
Thou hast taught our feet the way,
Hear us from Thy lofty throne,
703 Thus it becometh us to fulfil all
righteousness.-Matt. 3, 15
1 HUMBLE souls, who seek salvation. Through the Lamb's atoning blood, Hear the voice of revelation,
Tread the path that Jesus trod: Flee to Him your only Saviour, In His mighty name confide; In the whole of your behaviour Own Him as your only Guide. 2 Hear the blest Redeemer call you, Listen to His gracious voice; Dread no ills that can befal you, While you make His ways your choice: Jesus says, "Let each believer
Be baptized in my name:"
He Himself in Jordan's river.
Was immersed beneath the stream. 3 Plainly here His footsteps tracing, Follow Him without delay;
Gladly His command embracing,
704 If any man serve Me, let him follow
Me.-John 12, 20.
D'ambrace à soul so vile?
EAR Lord, and will Thy pardoning
Wilt Thou my load of guilt remove,
2 Hast Thou the cross for me endured,
