Advent to Candlemas (Vol. 2)

New Baptism

  1. Thy people wait upon the bank
    To be baptised once more;
    Discounted now all fame and rank,
    All that has gone before.
  2. Those who have fallen on the way
    By carelessness or craft
    Determined to repent and pray
    May take the healing draught.
  3. Restored in Grace, Revived in Word,
    The water fills our soul,
    And so we wait upon The Lord,
    Whose birth will make us whole.
