This Is My Beloved Son


1. Jesus entered Jordan’s waters
When His work had just begun.
God the Father spoke from heaven:
2. Nephites gazing into heaven
Saw their white-robed Savior come.
And they heard the Father witness:
3. Joseph saw two glorious beings
Shining brighter than the sun.
God again presented Jesus:
4. As I read the scriptures daily
Words of Christ, the Holy One
In my heart I’ll hear God tell me:
Chorus:
“This is My Beloved Son.
Hear Him!”

Matthew 3:16–17 (JST, Matt. 3:44–46) 3 Nephi 11:6–8 Joseph Smith—History 1:17 Doctrine and Covenants 18:34–36
