Ich bin getauft auf deinen Namen

Rambach, 1723

Baptized into Thy name most holy,

O Father, Son, and Holy Ghost,

I claim a place, though weak and lowly,

Among Thy seed, Thy chosen host;

Buried with Christ, and dead to sin,

Thy Spirit now shall live within.

My loving Father here doth take me

To be henceforth His child and heir;

My faithful Saviour now doth make me

The fruit of all His sorrows share;

My Comforter will comfort me

When darkest clouds around I see.

And I have vowed to fear and love Thee,

And to obey Thee, Lord, alone;

I felt Thy Spirit inly move me,

And dared to pledge myself Thy own,

Renouncing sin to keep the faith,

And war with evil to the death.

My faithful God, Thou failest never,

Thy covenant surely will abide;

Oh cast me not away for ever,

Should I transgress it on my side,

If I have sore my soul defiled,

Yet still forgive, restore Thy child.

Yea, all I am and love most dearly

To Thee I offer now the whole;

Oh let me make my vows sincerely,

Take full possession of my soul,

Let nought within me, nought I own,

Serve any will but Thine alone.

And never let my purpose falter,

O Father, Son, and Holy Ghost,

But keep me faithful to Thine altar,

Till Thou shalt call me from my post;

So unto Thee I live and die,

And praise Thee evermore on high.
