  My Baptismal Birth-Day  

 

God's child in Christ adopted,-Christ my all,-
What that earth boasts were not lost cheaply, rather
Than forfeit that blest name, by which I call
The Holy One, the Almighty God, my Father?-
Father! in Christ we live, and Christ in Thee-
Eternal Thou, and everlasting we.
The heir of heaven, henceforth I fear not death:
In Christ I live! in Christ I draw the breath
Of the true life!-Let then earth, sea, and sky
Make war against me! On my heart I show 10
Their mighty master's seal. In vain they try
To end my life, that can but end its woe.-
Is that a death-bed where a Christian lies?-
Yes! but not his-'tis Death itself there dies.

       - Samuel Taylor Coleridge
