Original text and translations
The sinless one to Jordan came,
and in the river shared our stain;
God’s righteousness he thus fulfilled,
and chose the path his Father willed.
Uprising from the waters there,
the Father’s voice did then declare
that Christ, the Son of God, had come
to lead his scattered people home.
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.
O Christ, may we baptized from sin,
go forth with you a world to win;
grant us the Holy Spirit’s power
to shield us in temptation’s hour.
