When Jesus Came to Jordan

Author: Fred Pratt Green, b. 1903 Meter: D Appears in 19 hymnals Scripture: Luke 3:15-22 Lyrics: 1 When Jesus came to Jordan to be baptized by John, he did not come for pardon. but as the Sinless One. He came to share repentance with all who mourn their sins, to speak the vital sentence with which good news begins. 2 He came to share temptation, our utmost woe and loss, for us and our salvation to die upon the cross. So when the Dove descended on him, the Son of Man, the hidden years had ended, the age of grace began. 3 Come, Holy Spirit, aid us to keep the vows we make; this very day invade us, and ev'ry bondage break. Come, give our lives direction, the gift we covet most: to share the resurrection that leads to Pentecost. Topics: Baptism of Our Lord, The; Epiphany Used With Tune: KING'S LYNN

Where is the soul-refreshing view of Jesus and his word? 3 What peaceful hours I once enjoyed! How sweet their memory still! But they have left an aching void the world can never fill. 4 Return, O Holy Dove! return, sweet messenger of rest! I hate the sins that made thee mourn, and drove thee from my breast. 5 The dearest idol I have known, whate'er that idol be, help me to tear it from thy throne, and worship only thee. 6 So shall my walk be close with God, calm and serene my frame; so purer light shall mark the road that leads me to the Lamb.

I see your cross--there teach my heart to cling. O let me seek you and O let me find! 4 Teach me to feel that you are always nigh; teach me the struggles of the soul to bear, to check the rising doubt, the rebel sigh; teach me the patience of unanswered prayer. 5 Teach me to love you as your angels love, one holy passion filling all my frame: the baptism of the heaven-descended Dove, my heart an altar, and your love the flame.

When John Baptized by Jordan's River

Author: Timothy Dudley-Smith, 1926- Meter: D Appears in 16 hymnals Scripture: Luke 3:21-22 Lyrics: 1 When John baptized by Jordan's river in faith and hope the people came, that John and Jordan might deliver their troubled souls from sin and shame. They came to seek a new beginning, the human spirit's ageless quest, repentance and an end of sinning, renouncing every wrong confessed. 2 There as the Lord, baptized and praying, rose from the stream the sinless One, a voice was heard from heaven saying, "This is my own beloved Son." There as the Father's word was spoken, not in the power of wind and flame, but of his love and peace the token, seen as a dove, the Spirit came. 3 O Son of Man, our nature sharing, in whose obedience all are blest, Saviour, our sins and sorrows bearing, hear us and grant us this request: daily to grow, by grace defended, filled with the Spirit from above; in Christ baptized, beloved, befriended, children of God in peace and love.

Mark how the Lamb of God, self-offering

Author: Carl P. Daw, Jr. (b. 1944) Meter: D Appears in 6 hymnals Scripture: Luke 3:21-22 Lyrics: 1 Mark how the Lamb of God, self-offering, our human sinfulness takes on there in the waters of the Jordan, as Jesus is baptized by John. Hear how the voice from heaven is saying, 'Lo, this is my belovèd Son.' See how in dovelike form the Spirit descends on God's Anointed One. 2 From this assurance of God's favour Christ goes into the wilderness, there to endure a time of testing, preparing him to teach and bless. So we, by water and the Spirit baptized into Christ's ministry, are often led to paths of service through mazes of adversity. 3 Grant us, O God, the strength and courage to live the faith our lips declare; bless us in our baptismal calling; Christ's royal priesthood help us share. Turn us from every false allegiance, that we may trust in Christ alone: make of us now a chosen people transformed by love to be your own.
