Water and Spirit are joined in this place,
Visible sign of a spiritual grace,
True act of God, not earned but received,
Love we have known before we were conceived.
Eternal streams of your life water flow,
Creative power one day we will know.
First from the womb, and now from the bowl,
Clean us and wash us by making us whole.
Children of God we forever will be,
Marked with the sign of the flood and
Elder and child are born from above,
Graced with the freedom that leads us to love.
