Baptize Me



Baptize Me
Author: Mark V. Markov

Baptize me
Baptize my heart
Baptize me
Baptize my soul

Baptize my spirit
Baptize my body
Baptize me whole

In the name of Jesus
Immerse me in the water
In the name of Jesus
Immerse me,
Submerse me.

As my old self dies
The new life begins in Christ
Old things are put away
In Christ, I am a new creation.
The old has passed away;
Behold, the new has come.

Baptize me
Baptize my heart
Baptize me
Baptize my soul

Baptize my spirit
Baptize my body
Baptize me whole

In the name of Jesus
Immerse me in the water
In the name of Jesus
Immerse me,
Submerse me.

"Upon your profession of faith
in the Lord Jesus Christ
I now baptize you
In the name of
The Father, Son, and the Holy Spirit
In Jesus Christ name.
Now be fully immersed in water"

Baptize me
Baptize my heart
Baptize me
Baptize my soul

Baptize my spirit
Baptize my body
Baptize me whole

In the name of Jesus
Immerse me in the water
In the name of Jesus
Immerse me,
Submerse me ...



Matthew 28:18-20 (ESV)

18 And Jesus came and said to them,
"All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me.

19 Go therefore and make disciples of all nations,
baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,

20 teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you.
And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age."

Mark 16:15-16 (ESV)

15 And he said to them,
"Go into all the world and proclaim the gospel to the whole creation.

16 Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved,
but whoever does not believe will be condemned.

"Repent and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ
for the forgiveness of your sins, and you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.

But when they believed Philip as he preached good news
about the kingdom of God and the name of Jesus Christ,
they were baptized, both men and women.

for he had not yet fallen on any of them,
but they had only been baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus.

Romans 6:1-14 (ESV)

1 What shall we say then? Are we to continue in sin that grace may abound?

2 By no means! How can we who died to sin still live in it?

3 Do you not know that all of us
who have been baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into his death?

4 We were buried therefore with him by baptism into death, in order that,
just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father,
we too might walk in newness of life.

5 For if we have been united with him in a death like his,
we shall certainly be united with him in a resurrection like his.

6 We know that our old self was crucified with him
in order that the body of sin might be brought to nothing,
so that we would no longer be enslaved to sin.

7 For one who has died has been set free from sin.

8 Now if we have died with Christ, we believe that we will also live with him.

9 We know that Christ, being raised from the dead,
will never die again; death no longer has dominion over him.

10 For the death he died he died to sin, once for all,
but the life he lives he lives to God.

11 So you also must consider yourselves dead to sin and alive to God in Christ Jesus.

12 Let not sin therefore reign in your mortal body, to make you obey its passions.

13 Do not present your members to sin as instruments for unrighteousness,
but present yourselves to God as those who have been brought from death to life,
and your members to God as instruments for righteousness.

14 For sin will have no dominion over you, since you are not under law but under grace.


Acts 2:38 (ESV)

38 And Peter said to them, “Repent and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins, and you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.


Acts 8:16 (ESV)

for he had not yet fallen on any of them, but they had only been baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus.


Romans 6:3 (ESV)

Do you not know that all of us who have been baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into his death?

(I did baptize also the household of Stephanas. Beyond that, I do not know whether I baptized anyone else.)


Matthew 28:18-20 (ESV)

18 And Jesus came and said to them,
"All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me.

19 Go therefore and make disciples of all nations,
baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,

20 teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you.
And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age."


Acts 19:5 (ESV)
