Into the Watery Grave by Raymond A. Foss

Dying in the waters
falling beneath the waves
ritually dying to ourselves
into the watery grave

With Christ in his baptism
in his suffering and death
in the waters of baptism
we join him in death

Rising from the waters
like Christ from the Jordan
new creations in the rising
the Spirit descending on us

Like Christ we rise victorious
able with him to go
to withstand the temptations of the world
if we turn to the Spirit within

Sent as he was sent
to spread the message of love
God’s grace to redeem the whole world
to bring us home to him
