Description: Describes the joy of the baptism with family nearby and the blessings of the covenant of baptism.
- A heart prepared, Water so clean; precious covenant.
The room so still; act of free will, Father’s Plan fulfill.
Heaven’s angels weep and cheer, Friends and family near.
Sharing the glorious, simple joy of entr’ing kingdom’s door.
- Arising clean with face agleam; love’s sweet glories stream.
Spirit so near; listen to hear. Precious covenant.
Then with hands, the gift so mild, sent to lift and build.
Sealing the holy covenant of the Father and the child.
