Hymn of the Day–LCMS Convention

This is the convention hymn by Stephen Starke, which was sung at tonight’s Opening Service:

Baptized into Christ Jesus’ death,
One with Him on that cursed tree;
Just as He rose, So also those
Baptized into His victory!
Praise God! We are one in Christ and baptized for this moment!
Praise God! We are one in Christ and baptized for this moment!

For God so loved the human race,
He gave His one and only Son;
All who believe In Christ receive
Life everlasting He has won.
Praise God! We are one in Christ and baptized for this moment!
Praise God! We are one in Christ and baptized for this moment!

Receive forgiveness for your sins,
The Holy Spirit from on high:
Rich gifts for all whom God will call,
To live in Christ that self may die.
Praise God! We are one in Christ and baptized for this moment!
Praise God! We are one in Christ and baptized for this moment!

Now clothed with Christ, we are renewed,
Cleansed by this washing of rebirth!
His Church Christ sends, to her commends
His great good news for all the earth.
Praise God! We are one in Christ and baptized for this moment!
Praise God! We are one in Christ and baptized for this moment!

Baptized into Christ Jesus’ death!
Alive in Christ, raised from His grave!
To all who hear, both far and near,
Go, speak that Name with pow’r to save!
Praise God! We are one in Christ and baptized for this moment!
Praise God! We are one in Christ and baptized for this moment!
