3. The Baptist, too, had asked of you The reason for this deed. “Why come to me, Lord,” queried he, “For pardon you don’t need?”
4. “We must fulfill God’s righteous will,” You said, and so we know That, by God’s grace, you will embrace As yours our human woe.
5. John does proclaim to us the same Stern words that he once said; But you we see stand willingly With us, and in our stead.
6. Forgiving Lord, to us afford Through Baptism’s promise true Your righteousness, which e’er shall bless And joins us all to you.
