Tune: In Dir Ist Freude

Music: Giovanni Giacomo Gastoldi, c. 1556–c. 1622

The Word and water
Give us a shelter
In the midst of God’s good grace.
The Spirit descending,
Jesus He’s sending;
Then our sins all flee apace.
Heaven is ours___
Useless are powers,
Kingdoms, dominions,
And Satan’s minions;
These grace-filled waters vanquish our foes!
Silenced are hauntings
Of sin-guilt’s tauntings;
We are now holy
As Christ is holy
Because these waters drown all or foes!
