“This Is My Beloved Son,” Friend, Apr. 1988, 5 This Is My Beloved Son Words by Marvin K. Gardner Music by Vanja Y. Watkins 1. Jesus entered Jordan’s waters When His work had just begun. God the Father spoke from heaven: 2. Nephites gazing into heaven Saw their white-robed Savior come. And they heard the Father witness: 3. Joseph saw two glorious beings Shining brighter than the sun. God again presented Jesus: 4. As I read the scriptures daily Words of Christ, the Holy One In my heart I’ll hear God tell me: Chorus: “This is My Beloved Son.
