Isaac Watts, 1707
'Twas the commission of our Lord,|
Go teach the nations, and baptize:
The nations have received the word
Since He ascended to the skies.
2. He sits upon th' eternal hills,
3. Repent, and be baptized, He saith,|
For the remission of your sins:
And thus our sense assists our faith,
And shows us what His gospel means.
4. Our souls He washes in His blood,
5. Thus we engage ourselves to Thee,|
And seal our cov'nant with the Lord;
O may the great eternal Three
In heav'n our solemn vows record!
