                                  Text From:

                       THE LUTHERAN HYMNAL

        (St. Louis: Concordia Publishing House, 1941)

        1. He that believes and is baptized

        Shall see the Lord's salvation;

        Baptized into the death of Christ,

        He is a new creation.

        Through Christ's redemption he shall stand

        Among the glorious heavenly band

        Of every tribe and nation.

        2. With one accord, O God, we pray:

        Grant us Thy Holy Spirit;

        Look Thou on our infirmity

        Through Jesus' blood and merit.

        Grant us to grow in grace each day

        That by this Sacrament we may

        Eternal life inherit.
