Baptism.
297

When from the Jordan’s gleaming wave

Came forth the Sinless One,

A voice athwart the heavens flashed,

“Lo! my beloved son!”

The Baptist, gazing on his face,

With the soul’s radiance bright,

Beheld upon his sacred head

A snow-white dove alight.

Now with baptismal waters touched,

Thy children, Father, see!

While heart and soul, and mind and strength,

They consecrate to Thee.

Send down on them Thy holy dove,

Thy spirit undefiled;

Be each in purity and faith

Thy well-beloved child!

O help them in the wilderness

To conquer doubt and sin;

To see above them still Thy Peace,

And hear Thy voice within!
