Out of deep unordered water
God created land and life,
world of bird and beast, and later
two-some people, husband, wife.
There is water in the river
bringing life to tree and plant.
Let creation praise its giver;
there is water in the font.
Water on the human forehead,
birthmark of the love of God,
is the sign of death and rising;
through the sea there runs a road.
Standing round the font reminds us
of the Hebrews’ climb ashore.
Life is hallowed by the knowledge:
God has been this way before.
