1 My trust I placed in God's good grace
his promises believing,
for now I see Christ died for me
my pardon thus achieving.

2 By water's sign this gift is mine,
my guilt has gone for ever,
for Christ the Son and I are one
this bond no power can sever.

3 His word is true, my heart is new,
my life is joy unbounded,
for he will save me from the grave
while Satan stands confounded.

4 So now I sing of Christ my king,
his holy name confessing
who by this deed gives all I need
and fills me with his blessing.
