The Baptism of our Lord: He That Believes and Is Baptized

Thus Jesus His disciples sent:
Go teach ye every nation,
That lost in sin they must repent;
And flee from condemnation:
He that believes and is baptized,
Obtains a mighty blessing;
A new-born man, no more he dies,
Eternal life possessing,
A joyful heir of Heaven.

Christ, Unser Herr, zum Jordan Kam, Stanza 5
