MONTGOMERY DELANEY: LISTEN

With This Water

(Montgomery Delaney)
March 1, 2006
My good friends Sean and Vicky Sunkel gave me the absolute privilege of writing a song for the Christening of their beautiful son Aidan. I am very proud of the song and it was very well received in a beautiful old New England church on a gorgeous new Spring morning.....Would you beleive it...it was St. John's Church!...there truly are no coincidences in this life.........
With this water
You are welcomed
As was Jesus by Saint John
Into a family
Which on the last day
Will be called
to their Father's home;

With this water
You are annointed
With salvation and His grace
And He will guide you
Through the darkness
And all the trials that every man must face;

With this water you will be blessed and shielded
From the stain of every sin
With this water the journey of your spirit
Little boy begins;

With this water
You are commended
into the fullness of your life
You ar eenlisted
in His army
And you must live now for what is right;

With this water
You are entrusted
With the promise of your faith
Have no fear now
You are protected
By the sacrifice He made in your name;

With this water you will be blessed and shielded
From the stain of every sin
With this water the journey of your spirit
Little boy begins;

With this water
the journey of your spirit
Little boy begins...

With this water
Holy water
Blessed water
Cleansing water
With this water..........
