215. C. M. Exeter Coll. The Baptism of Jesus.
1 See, from on high, a light divine
On Jesus' head descend!
And hear the sacred voice from heaven
That bids us all attend.
2 |This is my well-beloved Son,|
Proclaimed the voice divine;
|Hear him,| his heavenly Father said,
|For all his words are mine.|
3 His mission thus confirmed from heaven,
The great Messiah came,
And heavenly wisdom showed to man
In God his Father's name.
4 The path of heavenly peace he showed
That leads to bliss on high;
Where all his faithful followers here
Shall live, no more to die.
