Baptise My Soul - Poem by Colin Ian Jeffery

Baptise my soul in the holy river
And strengthen my resolve
For I walk through the valley of shadows
And my steps begin to falter.

Jesus Christ is my truth and strength
And his saints show me the way
But my sins are such a heavy load
And I fear Heaven now lies beyond my reach.
