1 Now through the grace of God we claim
this life to be his own,
baptized with water in the name
of Father, Spirit, Son.

2 For Jesus Christ the crucified,
who broke the power of sin,
now lives to plead for those baptized
in unity with him.

3 So let us act upon his word,
rejoicing in our faith,
until we rise with Christ our Lord
and triumph over death!
