Down to the Sacred Wave

I
Down to the sacred wave,
The Lord of life was led;
And He who came our souls to save,
In Jordan bowed His head.

II
With willing hearts we tread
The path the Saviour trod;
We love the example of our Head,
The glorious Lamb of God.

III
On Thee, on thee alone
Our hope and faith rely,
O Thou, who didst for sin atone,
Who didst for sinners die.

IV
We trust Thy sacrifice;
To Thy dear cross we flee;
O may we die to sin, and rise
To life and bliss in Thee.
