Lyrics:
1.  Out of deep, unordered water 
    God created light and land,
    World of bird and beast and, later,
    In God's image, woman, man.
    There is water in the river
    Bringing life to tree and plant.
    Let creation praise its giver:
    There is water in the font.

2.  Water on the human forehead,
    Birthmark of the love of God,
    Is the sign of death and rising;
    Through the seas there runs a road.
    There is water in the river
    Bringing life to tree and plant.
    Let creation praise its giver:
    There is water in the font.

3.  Standing round the font reminds us
    Of the Hebrews' climb ashore.
    Life is hallowed by the knowledge:
    God has been this way before.
    There is water in the river
    Bringing life to tree and plant.
    Let creation praise its giver:
    There is water in the font.
