Baptized into Your Name Most Holy

Author: Johann J. Rambach, 1693-1735; Catherine Winkworth, 1827-1878 Meter: Appears in 45 hymnals Lyrics: 1 Baptized into your name most holy, O Father, Son, and Holy Ghost, I claim a place, though weak and lowly, among your seed, your chosen host. Buried with Christ and dead to sin, your Spirit now shall live within. 2 My loving Father, there you took me to be henceforth your child and heir. My faithful Savior, there you let me the fruit of all your sorrows share. O Holy Spirit, comfort me when threat'ning clouds around I see. 3 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. 4 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.

I Know of a Sleep in Jesus' Name

Author: Magnus B. Landstad Meter: Appears in 15 hymnals Lyrics: 1 I know of a sleep in Jesus' name, A rest from all toil and sorrow; Earth folds in her arms my weary frame And shelters it till the morrow; My soul is at home with God in heav'n, Her sorrows are past and over. 2 I know of a peaceful eventide; And when I am faint and weary, At times with the journey sorely tried, Thro' hours that are long and dreary, Then often I yearn to lay me down And sink into blissful slumber. 3 I know of a morning bright and fair When tidings of joy shall wake us, When songs from on high shall fill the air And God to His glory take us, When Jesus shall bid us rise from sleep-- How joyous that hour of waking! 4 Oh, that is a morning dear to me, And oft, o'er the mountains streaming, In spirit its heav'nly light I see As golden the peaks are beaming. Then sing I for joy like birds at dawn That carol in lofty lindens. 5 God's Son to our graves then takes His way, His voice hear all tribes and nations; The portals are rent that guard our clay, And moved are the sea's foundations. He calls out aloud, "Ye dead, come forth!" In glory we rise to meet Him. 6 O Jesus, draw near my dying bed And take me into Thy keeping And say when my spirit hence is fled, "This child is not dead, but sleeping." And leave me not, Savior, till I rise To praise Thee in life eternal. Amen.
