Hymn: TLH 298:
Baptized into Thy Name Most Holy

Hymnary.org — Organ Audio

1. 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. 

2. My loving Father, Thou dost take me 
To be henceforth Thy child and heir; 
My faithful Savior, Thou dost make me 
The fruit of all Thy sorrows share; 
Thou, Holy Ghost, wilt comfort me 
When darkest clouds around I see. 

3. And I have vowed to fear and love Thee 
And to obey Thee, Lord, alone; 
Because the Holy Ghost did move me, 
I dared to pledge myself Thine own, 
Renouncing sin to keep the faith 
And war with evil unto death. 

4. My faithful God, Thou failest never, 
Thy covenant surely will abide; 
Oh, cast me not away forever 
Should I transgress it on my side! 
Though I have oft my soul defiled, 
Do Thou forgive, restore, Thy child. 

5. Yea, all I am and love most dearly 
I offer now, O Lord, to Thee, 
Oh, let me make my vows sincerely 
And help me Thine own child to be! 
Let naught within me, naught I own, 
Serve any will but Thine alone. 

6. 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.
