1. When Jesus Christ was baptizedDown in the River Jordan,Three members of the GodheadWere present there in love.The Father spoke from heavenWhen Jesus Christ was baptized;The Holy Ghost descendedAs gently as a dove.
2. And now when I am baptized,I'll follow his example-Be baptized by immersionThrough sacred priesthood pow'r.Then I will be a memberOf Heav'nly Father's kingdomAnd have the Holy SpiritTo guide me ev'ry hour.
