Songs for Worship

Sing joyfully to the LORD, you righteous; it is fitting for the upright to praise him.  Praise the LORD with the harp; make music to him on the ten-stringed lyre. Sing to him a new song; play skillfully, and shout for joy.

Psalm 33:1-3 (NIV)

 

   

All Who Believe And Are Baptized

Background

This song celebrates the grace of God in baptism, taking its first line from Mark 16:16.  Baptism connects us with Christ's saving work.  We are baptized into the new life in Christ which points us to the resurrection. 

You could call this a re-manufactured hymn.  The text was written by Thomas Kingo (1634-1703) and translated by George A.T. Rygh (1860-1943) and has been paired with the tune "Es ist das Heil."  What I have done with this song is taken this Lutheran hymn and put it in a simple contemporary setting to make it accessible to those worshiping in a contemporary style. In addition to adding an "Alleluia" at the end of each stanza, I have also added a bridge, an offering of worship to God for the gift of new life in baptism.

 

Lyrics

Verse 1
All who believe and are baptized
Shall see the Lord’s salvation
Baptized into the death of Christ
They are a new creation
Through Christ’s redemption they will stand
Among the glorious heav’nly band
Of ev’ry tribe and nation
Alleluia

Verse 2
With one accord O God we pray
Grant us your Holy Spirit
Help us in our infirmity
Through Jesus blood and merit
Grant us to grow in grace each day
By holy Baptism that we may
Eternal life inherit
Alleluia

Bridge
We worship you
Our praises due
Baptized in you
We are made new
We worship you
Our praises due
Baptized in you
We are made new
