When Jesus came to JordanTo be baptized by John,He did not come for pardon,But as his Father's Son.He came to share repentanceWith all who mourn their sins,To speak the vital sentenceWith which good news begins.He came to share temptation,Our utmost woe and loss,For us and our salvationTo die upon the cross.So when the Dove descendedOn him, the Son of Man,The hidden years had ended,The age of grace began.
