537 (L.M.) Robert Daniel

What lovely band is this I see

All singing in sweet harmony,

United 'round the waterside,

And praising Jesus crucified?

These are the foll'wers of the Lamb;

Here they are come to own His name;

Their humble strains ascend the skies;

In faith they're come to be baptized.

This brings to view the ancient days

When first the gospel church was raised;

No other mode was then devised —

Believing souls were thus baptized:

Baptized into the Saviour's death,

Arising, lived the life of faith;

Giving to Christ the Lord the praise

By walking in His humble ways.
