Representative lyrics

English (Original Language)

1. Father in Heav’n, we do believe The promise thou hast made; Thy word with meekness we receive, Just as thy Saints have said.

2. We now repent of all our sin And come with broken heart, And to thy covenant enter in And choose the better part.

3. O Lord, accept us while we pray, And all our sins forgive; New life impart to us this day, And bid the sinners live.

4. Humbly we take the sacrament In Jesus’ blessed name; Let us receive thru covenant The Spirit’s heav’nly flame.

5. We will be buried in the stream In Jesus’ blessed name, And rise, while light shall on us beam The Spirit’s heav’nly flame.

6. Baptize us with the Holy Ghost And seal us as thine own, That we may join the ransomed host And with the Saints be one.
