As Those Baptised

These lyrics were written with the tune of a wonderful and well known worship song in mind, but the composer has asked us not to tell you about his song.

As those baptised
into the mysteries of Christ,
in him weʼre now born anew.
We took the plunge,
and left behind the life we knew,
embraced the hope, the peace, the song:
Love now reigns! Love now reigns!

Love now reigns! Love now reigns!


So now by grace
the gates of heaven open wide.
Christʼs love enfolds all who come.
Immersed into his death and raised to life again,
With heavenʼs choirs this song we raise:
Love now reigns! Love now reigns!

Love now reigns! Love now reigns!
