When We To Cleansing Waters Came

When we to cleansing waters came,
baptized in Jesus’ name,
did not the rite of death to sin
newness of life proclaim?

Too long enthralled to Satan’s sway,
we now are slaves no more;
for Christ has vanquished death and sin
our freedom to restore.

With Christ the Lord we died to sin,
with him to life we rise;
in Christ’s new life we now can walk,
in him attain the prize.
