Extreme Baptism

by Mark Stucky

What water volume optimizes baptism?
Sprinkling, pouring, or total immersion?
Will more water cleanse my crimes better?
Will all my many sins wash away?

I might need a better method
for my obstinate stuck-on sins.
To remove all those stubborn stains,
Jesus, please pressure-wash my soul.
