This Is My Beloved Son

 

Lyrics

  1. 1. Jesus entered Jordan’s waters

    When His work had just begun.

    God the Father spoke from heaven:

  2. [Chorus]

    “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. 3. Joseph saw two glorious beings

    Shining brighter than the sun.

    God again presented Jesus:

  5. 4. As I read the scriptures daily—

    Words of Christ, the Holy One—

    In my heart I’ll hear God tell me:
