  1. 1. When Jesus Christ was baptized
    Down in the River Jordan,
    Three members of the Godhead
    Were present there in love.
    The Father spoke from heaven
    When Jesus Christ was baptized;
    The Holy Ghost descended
    As gently as a dove.
  2. 2. And now when I am baptized,
    I'll follow his example-
    Be baptized by immersion
    Through sacred priesthood pow'r.
    Then I will be a member
    Of Heav'nly Father's kingdom
    And have the Holy Spirit
    To guide me ev'ry hour.
