“This Is My Beloved Son,” Liahona, Dec. 1997, 4–5

This Is My Beloved Son

1. Jesus entered Jordan’s waters

when His work had just begun.

God the Father spoke from heaven:

“This is My Beloved Son.

Hear Him!”

2. Nephites gazing into heaven

Saw their white-robed Savior come.

and they heard the Father witness:

“This is My Beloved Son.

Hear Him!”

3. Joseph saw two glorious beings

Shining brighter than the sun.

God again presented Jesus:

“This is My Beloved Son.

Hear Him!”

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!”
