If Glorious Angels Do Rejoice

If glorious angels do rejoice
When winners turn to God,
Let us unite with cheerful voice
To spread his praise abroad.

When Jesus unto Jordan came,
And was baptized of John,
A voice from heaven did proclaim
‘Tis my beloved Son.

His ministers he sent about
To preach the word of grace,
And to baptize the world throughout,
Who should his truth embrace.

Lord we have here before your eyes,
Some that have set their hands
To serve thee, and to be baptized
As thou didst give command.

Glory to God who reigns above,
For his abounding grace,
In this the token of his love
To us a guilty race.

Let us employ our tongues to sing
The praises of the Lord,
For calling sinners home to him
By his all-powerful word.
