Inspired by the active nature of Adam Tice’s baptismal text, Marty Haugen has written a tune that evokes the same “immediate and strong energy.” This song can be used for any baptismal ritual or remembrance of baptism. Although certainly appropriate for infant baptisms, the text and tune combination in “From the Waters I Will Rise” would be especially meaningful during the baptism of youth or adults.

The C instrument part is optional.
