We Bless the Name of Christ Lyrics

We bless the Name of Christ, the Lord,
We bless Him for His holy Word,
Who loved to do His Father's will,
And all His righteousness fulfill.

We follow Him with pure delight
To sanctify His sacred rite;
And thus our faith with water seal,
To prove obedience that we feel.

Baptized in Godthe Father, Son,
And Holy SpiritThree in One,
With conscience free, we rest in God,
In love and peace, through Jesus' blood.

By grace we "Abba, Father" cry;
By grace the Comforter comes nigh;
And for Thy grace our love shall be
Forever, only, Lord, for Thee.
