This Is My Beloved Son

This Is My Beloved Son

With expression

1. Jesus entered Jordan’s waters

When His work had just begun.

God the Father spoke from heaven:

[Chorus]

“This is My Beloved Son. Hear Him!”

2. Nephites gazing into heaven

Saw their white-robed Savior come.

And they heard the Father witness:

[Chorus]

“This is My Beloved Son. Hear Him!”

3. Joseph saw two glorious beings

Shining brighter than the sun.

God again presented Jesus:

[Chorus]

“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:

[Chorus]

“This is My Beloved Son. Hear Him!”
