As I Rise To Walk With Him

By Elton Smith and Larry Holder

CCLI Number: 2671783

I wrote the music and the lyrics for the chorus. Larry added the verses. People have many different beliefs about baptism. No matter what you believe, this song is intended as a celebration of our rise from baptism to walk a new life with Jesus Christ. Please visit Larry's web site for more great music. - Elton, December 21, 1998.

We were therefore buried with him through baptism into death in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, we too may live a new life. Romans 6:4 (NIV)
Larry Holder Music


(Verse 1)
Except a seed be returned to the earth,
There to die to itself,
And yet to find its rebirth,
So I now testify
I am born from above,
Trusting in the Savior's love!

As I die (as I die) to my sin (to my sin)
I am raised unto life everlasting with Him.
Praise the Lord for His love
Shining down from above
As I rise to walk with Him.

(Verse 2)
No more a slave to the sin that I knew,
For the Lord's cleansing power
Now has made all things new.
Washed away is the old
By the blood of the Lamb;
By His grace alone I stand!

(Repeat Chorus)

(Banjo and fiddle solo)

(Repeat Chorus 2 more times)

This song has many meanings for me, that when we are baptized we are putting away the old self taking on a new person in Christ and a reminder that there's life eternal.that's just 2

Great song. I can't hear the music for some reason but the words alone blessed me. Thank you.
Thank you for the example of this song. As the minister of music for my church I am always in search of more songs with a strong word base, particularly songs that are used for special occasions. This song not only fits Baptism, but praise and worship overall. It's very easy listening and easy to play. I love it!
