On Immersion

White Cliffs of Dover - Soul Sacrifice
On Immersion
by Michael Doyle

Baptism is the symbolic immersion
To speak to the joy of conversion
This the way forward in progression
Washing away our sins and perversions

Sin entered the world through the tree
The knowledge of good and evil spoken to you and me
Bringing the chasm in broken relationship
Until we make right our ways in worship

There is no way to build or earn
The restoration we need to discern
The ways of holiness to be without sin
Until the price is paid by Christ's bridge again

Grace received if we are to ever take
The right decisions we all need to make
The steps back from the pit of burning Hell
A place for the Devil, where demons dwell

Baptism cleans us of our lack of certainty
A cleansing path back to ways of purity
Knowing our disappointments and our failing
Back on the journey of God's will prevailing
