Baptise My Soul - Poem by Colin Ian Jeffery

Baptise my soul in the holy river
Strengthen my resolve
For I walk through the valley of shadows
And my steps are faltering.

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 lies beyond my reach.
