Baptize Me

Baptize Me

Written by Nick Hammond, Ed Shockley & Kevin Walsh

aptize Me

I prayed for a guiding light
You gifted me this perfect night
You broke in to my heart of stone
I found faith I’ve never owned
Now there’s no river that runs too deep
No sky above I can’t reach

Baptize Me in your pure sweet water
Baptize Me in your loving arms
Take me under I’ll surrender
In the name of love Baptize Me

We sway in time like Kansas wheat
Soar like birds on the delta breeze
You’re the heart in my heartland
I give myself to your healing hands
Lay me down in amber waves
My angel of the fruited plains

Baptize Me in your pure sweet water
Baptize Me in your loving arms
Take me under I’ll surrender
In the name of love Baptize Me

I take no pride in my past mistakes
All those times I fell from grace
Never thought I’d get another chance
But here I stand at heaven’s gates

Baptize Me in your pure sweet water
Baptize Me in your loving arms
Take me under I’ll surrender
In the name of love Baptize Me

Baptize Me in your pure sweet water
Baptize Me in your loving arms
Take me under I’ll surrender
In the name of love Baptize Me
