Verse 1
Hear the voice from heaven saying
To Jesus, in River Jordan
A witness is to all the world
`This is my own beloved Son.`

Verse 2
Without sin is He and perfect
But to fulfil all righteousness
Of baptism in the water
He made Himself an example.

Verse 3
Son of the Father's own bosom
Is Salvation for all mankind
The source of life for the sinner
Jordan, brought near to Calvary.

Verse 4
Come, thou, follow now Thy Saviour
Obey the command, be baptised
Example of death with Jesus
And the ressurection with Him.

Verse 5
Come, do not be curious to know
A secret which the Lord would keep
Put obedience first and at last
The result will then be revealed.
