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:
    Alleluia! Amen.
