We take our place with Christ, our God,

Within the wat'ry grave

Buried with Him by symbol now,

Who died our souls to save.


By this confession we proclaim

Our sin and guilt and shame,

Our faith in our great Substitute,

The Son of God, the Lamb.


Arising from the grave, O Christ,

To live and walk with You,

Our hearts' allegiance now we pledge,

Our Lord and King, to You.


Sealed by Your Spirit, kept by grace,

We'll walk the narrow way:

We hope to serve Your cause on earth

In this our serving day.


Then when Your purpose is fulfilled,

And all our work is done,

We'll wait Your grace to bring us home

To serve before Your throne.


(Tune: Jesus the Very Thought of Thee)
