Lyrics

  1. 1. Jesus came to John the Baptist,
    In Judea long ago,
    And was baptized by immersion
    In the River Jordan's flow.
  2. 2. "To fulfill the law," said Jesus,
    When the Baptist questioned why,
    "And to enter with my Father
    In the kingdom up on high."
  3. 3. Now we know that we must also
    Witness faith in Jesus' word,
    Be baptized to show obedience,
    As was Jesus Christ, our Lord.
