Hymn: Come ye children of the kingdom

For Baptism
 
Come ye children of the kingdom
Sing with me for joy to day
Gather round as Christ’s disciples
Kneel with grateful hearts and pray
 
Theres a line contain’d in Matthew
What the Savior said to John
And the sacred words from heaven
This is my beloved Son.
 
As ’twas said to Nicodemus
So I must be born again
Tis by water and the spirit
I the promise may obtain
 
So I will obey the Savior
Keep his law and do his will
That I may enjoy forever
Happiness on Zions hill [p. [177]]
