In Jordan’s Tide The Baptist Stands,
Immersing The Repenting Jews;
The Son Of God The Rite Demands,
Nor Dares The Holy Man Refuse:
Jesus Descends Beneath The Wave,
The Emblem Of His Future Grave!

Wonder, Ye Heavens! Your Maker Lies
In Deeps Concealed From Human View;
Ye Saints, Behold Him Sink And Rise;
A Fit Example This For You:
The Sacred Record, While You Read,
Calls You To Imitate The Deed.

But, Lo! From Yonder Opening Skies,
What Beams Of Dazzling Glory Spread!
Dove-Like The Holy Spirit Flies,
And Lights On The Redeemer’s Head:
Amazed They See The Power Divine
Around The Saviour’s Temples Shine.

But, Hark! My Soul, Hark, And Adore!
What Sounds Are Those That Roll Along?
Not Loud, Like Sinai’s Awful Roar;
But Soft And Sweet As Gabriel’s Song:
“This Is My Well-Beloved Son,
I See Well-Pleased What He Hath Done.”

Thus The Eternal Father Spoke,
Who Shakes Creation With A Nod,
Through Parting Skies The Accents Broke,
And Bid Us Hear The Son Of God;
O Hear The Awful Word To-Day;
Hear, All Ye Nations, And Obey!
