They stood by the waters
The font was filled.
Family and friends were thrilled.
The father stood proud all dress in white
His son stood nearby a glorious sight,
As they held each other's hands.
The authority was there in priesthood fine
The Holy Ghost would be given when it was time.
We watched as their faces came up from the deep
The veil was lifted,
Their smile so sweet.
To be washed clean and enter in
The gate of eternity for them begins
To open as they passed through.
A member of God's Kingdom, his army too!
Thank you, dear Lord, for the example you set
As you too was baptized, we'll never forget.
But remember the example you gave us to do
To be baptized just like you.
