1 The sinless one to Jordan came
To share our fallen nature's blame;
God's righteousness he thus fulfilled
and chose the path his Father willed.
2 Uprising from the waters there,
The voice from heaven did witness bear
That he, the Son of God, had come
To lead his scattered people home.
3 Above him see the heavenly Dove,
The sign of God the Father's love,
Now by the Holy Spirit shed
Upon the Son's anointed head.
4 How blest that mission then begun
To heal and save a race undone;
Straight to the wilderness he goes
To wrestle with his people's foes.
5 Dear Lord, let those baptized from sin
Go forth with you a world to win,
And send the Holy Spirit's power
To shield them in temptation's hour.
6 On you may all your people feed
And know you are the Bread indeed,
Who gives eternal life to those
That with you died, and with you rose.
