Baptized into Your Name Most Holy (CW 294)


Romans 6:2-4, 11

2 By no means! We died to sin; how can we live in it any longer? 3 Or don’t you know that all of us who were baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into his death? 4 We were therefore buried with him through baptism into death in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, we too may live a new life.

11 In the same way, count yourselves dead to sin but alive to God in Christ Jesus.


1. Read Romans 6:2-4. What is Paul saying here?

2. How then are Christians to live? Read Romans 6:11.

Baptized into Your Name Most Holy (CW 294)

Baptized into Your name most holy,

    O Father, Son, and Holy Ghost,

I claim a place, though weak and lowly,

    Among Your saints, Your chosen host.

Buried with Christ and dead to sin,

Your Spirit now shall live within.

My loving Father, here You take me

    To be henceforth Your child and heir.

My faithful Savior, here You make me

    The fruit of all Your sorrows share.

O Holy Spirit, comfort me

When threat’ning clouds around I see.

My faithful God, You fail me never;

    Your promise surely will endure.

O cast me not away forever

    If words and deeds become impure.

Have mercy when I come defiled;

Forgive, lift up, restore Your child.

All that I am and love most dearly-

    Receive it all, O Lord, from me.

Let me confess my faith sincerely;

    Help me Your faithful child to be!

Let nothing that I am or own

Serve any will but Yours alone.
