When Jesus Christ Was Baptized

Print Share
    1. When Jesus Christ was baptized
    Down in the River Jordan,
    Three members of the Godhead
    Were present there in love.
    The Father spoke from heaven
    When Jesus Christ was baptized;
    The Holy Ghost descended
    As gently as a dove.
    2. And now when I am baptized,
    I’ll follow his example—
    Be baptized by immersion
    Through sacred priesthood pow’r.
    Then I will be a member
    Of Heav’nly Father’s kingdom
    And have the Holy Spirit
    To guide me ev’ry hour.
