Water on Your Face

Grace-infested waters
trickle down upon your face
the soil on your soul
washed away without a trace
Baptized among believers
God’s hand upon your head
the stain of sin wiped clean
transformed beauty in its stead
No longer are you doomed
to walk the road which you have paved
A new path your feet have found
when in Christ Jesus you are saved
Embrace God’s living presence
in the Church where Jesus reigns
throw your lot in with these sinners
who in Christ now live as saints
This community of love and hope
offers to the world God’s grace
the same joyful gift you felt that day
in the water on your face
