Lyrics:

Refrain: Up from the water, God has claimed you,
Up from the waters, O child of light.
Praise to the One who called and named you,
Up from the waters to life.

1. Always proclaim the wonderful story:
Up from the waters, child of light.
How you were raised from death into glory:
Up from the water into life.

2. Now you have crossed the River of Jordan:
Up from the waters, child of light.
Now you behold God's mercy and pardon:
Up from the water into life.

3. No more shall sin have power to hold you:
Up from the waters, child of light.
Now let the grace of Jesus enfold you:
Up from the water into life.

4. Come now and praise the God of the living:
Up from the waters, child of light.
Now let your song ring out with thanksgiving:
Up from the water into life.

5. Water of life and grace and salvation:
Up from the waters, child of light.
Water that heals the heart of creation:
Up from the water into life.

6. This is the life that rains down from heaven:
Up from the waters, child of light.
This is the new life Jesus has given:
Up from the water into life.
