    Jesus’ Baptism

    Hand signs This is John the Baptist.

    Hand signs This is Christ the Lord.

    Hand signs John laid Him under the water,

    Hand signs According to the word.

    Hand signs And after Christ was baptized,

    Hand signs God further showed His love.

    Hand signs John saw the Holy Spirit

    Hand signs Descending like a dove.
