Brought to the Water
Brought to the water and cleansed through the Word,
Filled by the Spirit and claimed by the Lord—
Live as His children, dear saints of our God;
Follow the path where your Savior has trod.
Once bitter enemies, now precious friends,
Blessed and redeemed by the grace that won't end:
Gather the lonely, the hurt, and the lost.
Bring them to Jesus, who covers the cost.
Marked on your brow by the seal of the Lamb,
Boldly go forth to the throne of I AM.
Though you are childlike, no merit to claim,
He calls you home, for you're wearing His name.
