  1. 1. Jesus entered Jordan’s waters
    When His work had just begun.
    God the Father spoke from heaven:
  2. “This is My Beloved Son. Hear Him!”
  3. 2. Nephites gazing into heaven
    Saw their white-robed Savior come.
    And they heard the Father witness:
  4. “This is My Beloved Son. Hear Him!”
  5. 3. Joseph saw two glorious beings
    Shining brighter than the sun.
    God again presented Jesus:
  6. “This is My Beloved Son. Hear Him!”
  7. 4. As I read the scriptures daily—
    Words of Christ, the Holy One—
    In my heart I’ll hear God tell me:
  8. “This is My Beloved Son. Hear Him!”
