Words: Isaac Watts Music: "Louvan" by Virgil C. Taylor 'Twas the commission of our Lord, "Go teach the nations, and baptize:" The nations have received the word Since He ascended to the skies. He sits upon th'eternal hills, With grace and pardon in His hands; And sends His cov'nant with the seals, To bless the distant darkened lands. [originally ...the distant British lands] "Repent, and be baptized," He saith, "For the remission of your sins:" And thus our sense assists our faith, And shows us what His Gospel means. Our souls He washes in His blood, As water makes the body clean; And the good Spirit from our God Descends like purifying rain. Thus we engage ourselves to Thee, And seal our cov'nant with the Lord; O may the great eternal Three In Heav'n our solemn vows record!
