The Baptism of our Lord: Not Simple Water, but the Word

So hear ye all, and well perceive
What God doth call baptism,
And what a Christian should believe
Who error shuns and schism:
That we should water use, the Lord
Declareth it His pleasure;
Not simple water, but the Word
And Spirit without measure;
He is the true Baptizer.

Christ, Unser Herr, zum Jordan Kam, Stanza 2
