1. Come, all ye lovers of the Lamb,
This path your dear Redeemer trod;
Behold Him bending in the stream,
See Him arise approved of God.

2. Repenting sinner, hither come;
Nor linger on the distant shore;
Your Savior made this solemn rite
An emblem of His saving power.

3. By faith alone the trembling soul
Can urge her claim to children's food;
She quits her hold on hopeless forms,
And seeks in Christ her only good.

4. Obedience flows from willing minds,
Renewed and purified by grace;
Come freely to the gospel pool,
All ye who humbly seek His face.
