Romans 6:3–4 (Listen)
3 Do you not know that all of us who have been baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into his death? 4 We were buried therefore with him by baptism into death, in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, we too might walk in newness of life.
Hymn: TLH 602, st. 1,3,5: It is not Death to Die
1. It is not death to die,
To leave this weary road,
And midst the brotherhood on high
To be at home with God.
3. It is not death to bear
The wrench that sets us free
From dungeon chain, to breathe the air
To spend eternal years.
5. Jesus, Thou Prince of Iife,
Thy chosen cannot die;
Like Thee, they conquer in the strife
To reign with Thee on high.
