Baptized into Christ Jesus
Baptized into Christ Jesus,
baptized into his dying,
buried with him in the grave
we have died with Christ.
Then just as Christ is risen
through God the Father’s power,
so God raises us to live from now in Christ.
2. Sin must no longer rule us,
self must not be the master,
Satan must control no more
mind or mouth or hand.
Brought back to life and freedom
gladly we now surrender
thoughts, words, deeds, to him who governs them by grace.
3. Not by the body’s washing,
not words and water only,
but from conscience and in faith
we have made our vows.
With Christ and all his people
this holy baptism sharing,
we now praise the risen, reigning, coming Lord!
