The Baptism of our Lord: This Is My Well-beloved Son

To show us this, He hath His Word
With signs and symbols given;
On Jordan’s banks was plainly heard
The Father’s voice from Heaven:
“This is My well-beloved Son,
In whom My soul delighteth;
Hear Him.” Yea, hear Him every one
Whom He Himself inviteth,
Hear and obey His teaching.

Christ, Unser Herr, zum Jordan Kam, Stanza 3
