Psalter manuscript

Catechism Song #61 – Baptism: Subjects


# Question Answer
129 Who are to be baptized? Believers and their children.
130 Why should infants be
Because they have a sinful nature and need a Saviour.
131 Does Christ care for little
Yes; for he says, “Suffer the little children to come unto me, and forbid them not: for of such is the kingdom of God.”


Who, pray tell me, is to be
Baptised as Christ’s disciple?
Christians and their infant seed
According to the Bible!

How do children qualify?
They’ve a sinful nature!
Thus the Scriptures justify
Their need of Christ as Saviour!

Is there but a single text
Where Jesus plainly teaches
‘Children to His Church be fetched;
To them His promise reaches’?

“Suffer little children come;
They are not forbidden
Truly such to Me belong
As minors in God’s kingdom!”
