Baptizatus sum + 17. 9. 1961 +

Ventersdorp TaufsteinBaptized into Your Name Most Holy
By: Johann J. Rambach

Baptized into your name most holy, O Father, Son, and Holy Ghost, I claim a place, though weak and lowly, Among your saints, your chosen host. Buried with Christ and dead to sin, Your Spirit now shall live within.

My loving Father, here you take me  to be hence forth your child and heir; My faithful Savior, here you make me The fruit of all your sorrows share; O Holy Ghost, you comfort me When threatening clouds around I see.

O faithful God, you fail me never;  Your promise surely will endure. O cast me not away forever if words and deeds become impure. Have mercy when I come defiled; Forgive, lift up, restore your child.

All that I am and love most dearly, Receive it all, O Lord, from me. Let me confess my faith sincerely, help me your faithful child to be! Let nothing that I am or own Serve any will but yours alone.
