    Verse 1
    See these ones in white apparel
    Standing by the river's brink
    That backs turned to the world and sin
    And waiting to be baptised
    And expecting,
    To fulfil the Lord's command

    Verse 2
    Behold, how they stand there in fear
    But they not of hope bereft
    They know that their blessed Saviour
    Commanded their immersion
    Jordan is cold,
    But their faith is waxing hot

    Verse 3
    Behold and see, other brethren
    Their elders in Jesus Christ
    Stretch out hands of love to help them
    They have been like them before
    At this moment,
    They rejoice in pardoning grace.

    Verse 4
    Go, follow your Saviour and Lord
    Behold with the eye of faith
    The heavens open: God's spirit
    Loudly saying from heaven
    ''These disciples,
    Are my beloved children''
