The Baptism of Jesus

Here we see Jesus being baptised by John in the River Jordan. The Holy Spirit descends like a dove - the Father is well pleased!

The Lamb of God is manifest
Again in Jordan's waters blest,
And he who sin had never known
By washing hath our sins undone.

Almighty God,
who anointed Jesus at his baptism with the Holy Spirit
and revealed him as your beloved Son:
Inspire us, your children,
who are born of water and the Spirit,
to surrender our lives to your service,
that we may rejoice to be called sons of God;
through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
