Songs for Baptism

Here is a collection of songs and texts that meditate on various themes related to baptism.  However you practice this sacrament it is a time for congregational celebration.  In the various churches that I’ve served we have always sung a song of praise during or after the baptism that unites the congregation in both proclaiming and remembering the significance of baptism for our life in Christ.
