When Jesus Christ Was Baptized (Friend)


When Jesus Christ Was Baptized (Friend)

Music from the Friend

1. When Jesus Christ was baptized
Down in the River Jordan,
Three members of the Godhead were present there that day.
I wish that I had been there
When Jesus Christ was baptized,
To see the heavens open
Above the earth that day.

2. I wonder what John felt like,
Who baptized by immersion,
To hear a voice from heaven approving of the way.
Although I was not present
When Jesus Christ was baptized,
I always will remember
It was a sacred day.
