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:


    “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
