Scripture: Romans 6:9 II Corinthians 5:17
Theme: Sacraments and Ordinances
1. We know that Christ is raised and dies no more.
Embraced by death He broke its fearful hold;
And our despair He turned to blazing joy.
2. We share by water in His saving death.
Reborn we share with Him an Easter life
As living members of a living Christ.
3. The Father's splendor clothes the Son with life.
The Spirit's power shakes the church of God.
Baptized we live with God the Three in One.
4. A new creation comes to life and grows
As Christ's new body takes on flesh and blood.
The universe, restored and whole, will sing:
