It seemed all hope for life was lost
As with His thorn-pierced brow and bloody back,
Was made to bear His heavy cross.
The cross where He was hanged for all to see
And where He took His final breath.
His body then prepared, placed in the tomb -
A resting place upon His death.
His burial appeared to be the end,
But from the tomb, His life was raised.
Disciples and His family proclaimed,
Heís resurrected, God be praised!
When baptized, we identify with Him.
Immersion is a picture of
Our Saviorís death and resurrection, too,
As well as His undying love.
Heís cleansed our hearts so we may be with Him
Forever in eternity.
The water shows our sins are washed away.
Weíre ready then, with Him to be.
This picture of His saving work in us
Holds beauty awesome, precious, rare.
Depicts most selfless act thatís known to man -
Redeemerís love beyond compare.
