“This Is My Beloved Son,” Friend, Apr. 1988, 5This Is My Beloved SonWords by Marvin K. GardnerMusic by Vanja Y. Watkins 1. Jesus entered Jordan’s watersWhen His work had just begun.God the Father spoke from heaven:2. Nephites gazing into heavenSaw their white-robed Savior come.And they heard the Father witness:3. Joseph saw two glorious beingsShining brighter than the sun.God again presented Jesus:4. As I read the scriptures dailyWords of Christ, the Holy OneIn my heart I’ll hear God tell me:Chorus:“This is My Beloved Son.Hear Him!”Matthew 3:16–17 (JST, Matt. 3:44–46)3 Nephi 11:6–8Joseph Smith—History 1:17Doctrine and Covenants 18:34–36Copyright © 1987 Vanja Y.
