Laver of Life

Posted in Advent, Atonement, Epiphany, Holy Week, Sanctification at 6:23 am by Teresa Roberts Johnson

Lord Christ, who cleansed the Jordan
When the waters touched thy head,
Touch thy people, purify us.
For our cleansing thou hast bled.

Precious Giver, thou art given
By thy Father for our sin.
Wash us with thy blood so crimson
That we may be pure within.

We, baptized into thy covenant,
Need thy daily washing still.
Bathe our feet, Lord, in thy goodness
That our hearts may seek thy will.

Thus beautiful, our feet will follow
In thy paths of righteousness,
Bringing tidings of thy mercy
To the nations thou shalt bless.
