COME, Father, Son, and Holy Ghost, Honor

By A Collection of Hymns

      L.M. At the Baptism of Adults.
      1 COME, Father, Son, and Holy Ghost,
      Honour the means ordained by thee!
      Make good our apostolic boast,
      And own thy glorious ministry.

      2 We now thy promised presence claim,
      Sent to disciple all mankind,
      Sent to baptize into thy name;
      We now thy promised presence find.

      3 Father! in these reveal thy Son:
      In these, for whom we seek thy face,
      The hidden mystery make known,
      The inward, pure, baptizing grace.

      4 Jesus! with us thou always art:
      Effectuate now the sacred sign,
      The gift unspeakable impart,
      And bless the ordinance divine.

      5 Eternal Spirit! descend from high,
      Baptizer of our spirits thou!
      The sacramental seal apply,
      And witness with the water now!

      6 O that the souls baptized therein
      May now thy truth and mercy feel;
      May rise and wash away their sin!
      Come, Holy Ghost, their pardon seal!
