KEEP IN CASE ORIGINAL IS REMOVED, BUT DO NOT DISPLAY
Baptised in water,
Sealed by the Spirit,
Cleansed by the blood of Christ our King:
Heirs of salvation,
Trusting his promise,
Faithfully now God's praise we sing.

Baptised in water,
Sealed by the Spirit,
Dead in the tomb with Christ our King:
One with his rising,
Freed and forgiven,
Thankfully now God's praise we sing.

Baptised in water,
Sealed by the Spirit,
Marked with the sign of Christ our King:
Born of one Father,
We are his children,
Joyfully now God's praise we sing
