Treasure Island

Colin Ian Jeffery

(20th May 1942 / Caterham)

BAPTISE MY SOUL


Baptise my soul in the holy river
Strengthen my resolve
For I walk through the valley of shadows
And my steps are faltering.

Jesus Christ is my truth and strength
His saints show me the way
But my sins are such a heavy load
That I fear Heaven lies beyond my reach.
