New Birth!

The Baptism of Meila Jo at late service on Sunday:

Baptized into Your name most holy,
O Father, Son, and Holy Ghost,
I claim a place, though weak and lowly,
Among Your saints, Your chosen host.
Buried with Christ and dead to sin,
Your Spirit now shall live within.

My loving Father, here You take me
To be henceforth Your child and heir;
My faithful Savior, here You make me
The fruit of all Your sorrows share;
O Holy Spirit, comfort me,
When threatening clouds around I see.
LSB 590:1,2
