A song of welcome to the newly-baptised at the Easter Vigil or at infant baptism services. It can also be used as a sprinkling song during Eastertime.
The verses are taken from baptismal scripture, including “I give you a new heart” and “I saw water flowing” from Ezekiel, “dying to sin, rising to life” and “one faith, one baptism” from Paul’s letters and Isaiah’s “drink from the springs of salvation”.
A Baptismal Liturgy edition is also available with the verses and responses arranged for use during the baptismal liturgy of the Easter Vigil, sprinkling during the Easter season and a general acclamation.
Instrumentation: Keyboard, SATB choir or cantor, guitar, melody instruments in C
