This Is My Beloved Son

Print Share
    1. Jesus entered Jordan’s waters
    when His work had just begun.
    God the Father spoke from heaven:
    “This is My Beloved Son.
    Hear Him!”
    2. Nephites gazing into heaven
    Saw their white-robed Savior come.
    and they heard the Father witness:
    “This is My Beloved Son.
    Hear Him!”
    3. Joseph saw two glorious beings
    Shining brighter than the sun.
    God again presented Jesus:
    “This is My Beloved Son.
    Hear Him!”
    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!”
