The Baptism of our Lord: All Righteousness Fulfilling

To Jordan came our Lord the Christ,
To do God’s pleasure willing,
And there was by Saint John baptized,
All righteousness fulfilling;
There did He consecrate a bath
To wash away transgression,
And quench the bitterness of death
By His own blood and passion;
He would a new life give us.

Christ, Unser Herr, zum Jordan Kam, Stanza 1
