 1God's own child, I gladly say it
 2.i Neumeister/Voelker
 3
 4.1
 5God's own child, I gladly say it:
 6I am baptized into Christ!
 7He, because I could not pay it,
 8Gave my full redemption price.
 9Do I need earth's treasure many?
10I have one worth more than any
11That brought me salvation free
12Lasting to eternity! 
13
14.2
15Sin, disturb my soul no longer:
16I am baptized into Christ!
17I have comfort even stronger:
18Jesus' cleansing sacrifice.
19Should a guilty conscience seize me
20Since my Baptism did release me
21In a dear forgiving flood,
22Sprinkling me with Jesus' blood?
23
24.3
25Satan, hear this proclamation:
26I am baptized into Christ!
27Drop your ugly accusation,
28I am not so soon enticed.
29Now that to the font I've traveled,
30All your might has come unraveled,
31And, against your tyranny,
32God, my Lord, unites with me! 
33
34.4
35Death, you cannot end my gladness:
36I am baptized into Christ!
37When I die, I leave all sadness
38To inherit paradise!
39Though I lie in dust and ashes
40Faith's assurance brightly flashes:
41Baptism has the strength divine
42To make life immortal mine.
43
44.5
45There is nothing worth comparing
46To this lifelong comfort sure!
47Open-eyed my grave is staring:
48Even there I'll sleep secure.
49Though my flesh awaits its raising,
50Still my soul continues praising:
51I am baptized into Christ;
52I'm a child of paradise!
