487 (S.M.) Samuel Smith

Down to the sacred wave,

The Lord of life was led;

And he who came our souls to save,

In Jordan bowed His head.

He taught the solemn way,

He fixed the holy rite,

He bade His ransomed ones obey,

And keep the path in sight.

The Holy Ghost came down,

The baptism to approve;

The ordinance of Christ to crown,

And stamp it with His love.

Dear Saviour, we will tread

In Thine appointed way;

Let glory o'er these scenes be shed,

And smile on us today.
