Father in Heaven, We Do Believe

31243, Hymns, Father in Heaven, We Do Believe, no. 180

1. Father in Heav'n, we do believe
The promise thou hast made;
Thy word with meekness we receive,
Just as thy Saints have said.

2. We now repent of all our sin
And come with broken heart,
And to thy covenant enter in
And choose the better part.

3. O Lord, accept us while we pray,
And all our sins forgive;
New life impart to us this day,
And bid the sinners live.

4. Humbly we take the sacrament
In Jesus' blessed name;
Let us receive thru covenant
The Spirit's heav'nly flame.

5. We will be buried in the stream
In Jesus' blessed name,
And rise, while light shall on us beam
The Spirit's heav'nly flame.

6. Baptize us with the Holy Ghost
And seal us as thine own,
That we may join the ransomed host
And with the Saints be one.
For sacrament, sing verses 1-4.
For baptismal services, omit verse 4.
