“This Is My Beloved Son,” Friend, Apr. 1988, 5

This Is My Beloved Son

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:


“This is My Beloved Son.

Hear Him!”

Matthew 3:16–17 (JST, Matt. 3:44–46)
3 Nephi 11:6–8
Joseph Smith—History 1:17
Doctrine and Covenants 18:34–36
