The Baptism of our Lord: From Fallen Adam Frees Us

The eye of sense alone is dim,
And nothing sees but water;
Faith sees Christ Jesus, and in Him
The Lamb ordained for slaughter;
She sees the cleansing fountain red
With the dear blood of Jesus,
Which from the sins inherited
From fallen Adam frees us,
And from our own misdoings.

Christ, Unser Herr, zum Jordan Kam, Stanza 7
