Theme: Baptism of the Lord
1. Christ, when for us You were baptized, God's Spirit on You came, As peaceful as a dove and yet As urgent as a flame. 2. God called You "My beloved Son," The suffering servant true, Sent You the kingdom to proclaim, God's holy will to do. 3. Straight-way and steadfast until death You then obeyed God's call Freely as Son of Man to serve And give Your life for all. 4. Baptize us with Your Spirit, Lord, Your cross on us be signed, That, likewise in God's service, we May perfect freedom find.
