HYMN 613

O.t.H.C 245 S.M (FE 639) 
Arise, and be baptised. - Act.22:16

1.  STAND, soldier of the cross

     Thy high allegiance claim

     And vow to hold the world but loss 

     For Thy Redeemer’s name.

2.  Arise, and be baptized

     And wash thy sins away

     Thy league with God be solemnized 

     Thy faith avouch’d today.

3.  No more thine own, but Christ's 

     With all the saints of old 

     Apostles, seers, evangelists

     The martyr throngs enrolled.

4.  In God’s whole armours strong 

     From hell’s embattled pow'rs

     The warfare may be sharp and long 

     The vict‘ry must be ours.

5.  Oh, bright the conqu‘ror‘s crown 

     The song of triumph sweet

     When faith casts every trophy down 

     At our great Captain's feet.  Amen
