HYMN 488

8s 7s
Guide Me Oh Thou Great Jehovah

1.  SEE these ones in white apparel 

     Standing by the river‘s brink

     Their back turned to the world and sin 

     And waiting to be baptised

     And expecting

     To fufil the Lord’s command.

2.  Behold, how they stand there in fear 

     But they not of hope bereft

     They know that their blessed Saviour 

     Commanded their immersion

     Jordan is cold

     But their faith is waxing hot.

3.  'Behold and see, other brethren

     Their elders in Jesus Christ

     Stretch our hands of love to help then 

     They have been like them before

     At this moment

     They rejoice in pard'ning grace.

4.  Go, follow your Saviour and Lord 

      Behold with the eye of faith

      The heavens open: God's spirit 

      Loudly saying from heaven 

      These disciples

      Are my beloved children.  Amen
