BAPTISM
563
(S^In token that thou shalt not blush To glory in His name, We blazon here upon thy front His glory and His shame.
In token that thou too shalt tread The path He travelled by,
Endure the cross, despise the shame, And sit thee down on high;
4 Thus outwardly and visibly We seal thee for His own: And may the brow that wears His cross Hereafter share His crown.
Rev. Henry Alford, 183a
564
2 The words of His extensive love From age to age endure: The Angel of the covenant proves, And seals the blessings sure.
|3 Jesus the ancient faith confirms To our great father given;
He takes young children in His arms, And calls them heirs of heaven.
4 Our God! how faithful are His ways! His love endures the same; Nor from the promise of His grace Blots out the children's name.
Rev. Isaac Watts, 1719
