Baptism is instituted instead of circumcision. TH NHUS did the sons of Abra'm pass
Beneath the bloody seal of grace ; The young disciples bore the yoke,
Till Christ the painful bondage broke. 2 By milder ways doth Jesus prove
His Father's cov'nant, and his love ;
And not forbids their infant race. 3 Their seed is sprinkled with his blood,
Their children set apart for God;
Like water pour'd upon the head. 4 Let ev'ry saint with cheerful voice
In this large covenant rejoice:

Bread and wine.
To meet around his board ;
Communion with their Lord. 2 For food he gives his flesh;
He bids us drink his blood; Amazing favour! matchless grace

Of Christ our cov'nant head. 4 This holy bread and wine
Maintains our fainting breath ; By union with our living Lord,
And int'rest in his death. 5 Our heay’nly Father calls
Christ and his members one ; We the young children of his love,
And he the first born Son. 6 We are but sey'ral parts
Of the same broken bread; The body hath its sev'ral limbs,
But Jesus is the head.
