Thomas H. Kingo (1634–1703)



He that be­lieves and is bap­tized
Shall see the Lord’s sal­va­tion;
Baptized in­to the death of Christ,
He is a new cre­ation.
Through Christ’s re­demp­tion he shall stand
Among the glo­ri­ous hea­ven­ly band
Of ev­ery tribe and na­tion.

With one ac­cord, O God, we pray:
Grant us Thy Ho­ly Spi­rit;
Look Thou on our in­fir­mi­ty
Through Je­sus’ blood and mer­it.
Grant us to grow in grace each day
That by this sac­ra­ment we may
Eternal life in­her­it.

The Baptism of Constantine
Raphael (1483–1520)
