Baptism

C.M.

1
Behold the Prince of glory go
To be baptized by John;
While Jordan’s honoured waters flow,
Around God’s Holy One.

2
Though many memorable things
Distinguished Jordan’s shore;
It never had the King of kings,
Beneath its waves before.

3
The Holy Spirit like a dove,
Comes with His pinions spread,
Down from the shining realms of love,
And settles on His head.

4
Now speaks the Father from His throne,
(Be earth and heaven amazed),
“Jesus is My beloved Son,
In whom I am well pleased.”
