    Default Baptism Songs? By Wednesday?

    Yes, I am fully aware that this is last minute.

    A married couple/members at our church has a grown son in the US Coast Guard. Any time he is in town, he attends service, participates in bible studies, etc. Praise God, he has made a profession of faith and will be baptized the next time he is in town!! Oh yea, the next time he is in town is THIS WEDNESDAY. As in 2 days.

    HELP!

    We are pulling together an impromptu service on Wednesday night to celebrate the start of his Journey. I am having a complete and total mental block on song choice. We typically use "Been Through the Water", but our preacher usually sings it - and at this point there is not anyone else available to learn that one by Wed.

    Any suggestions on songs that would be great to accompany a baptism? We'd like to work to make this small, service special and memorable before he ships back out on Thursday. Something he will remember as he is out serving in a hard life.

    Thanks!

    If you have a copy of the Celebration Hymnal, there is a song called "Baptized in Water" to the tune of "Morning Has Broken," which was a popular song 20 or so years back.
    I can't think of any contemporary songs that speak to baptism.

    I know it is to late to help Jennifer, but to those who read this thread in the future... consider "I Was There To Hear Your Borning Cry."
