1- The voice crying in the wilderness
Of John the Baptist and forerunner,
At the bank of the Jordan he stood
Preaching as hard as he could:
2- Repent, repent, bear the proper fruit
Get baptized, repent on your sins.
He called everyone to repent his sins,
Abandon them and get baptized.
3- Jesus Christ who never sinned,
Was very pleased to resemble men.
He asked John to baptize Him
In the Jordan like all sinners.
4- "Let's fulfill all righteousness."
Christ said to the Baptist.
John said he is the one who needs to
Bend and be baptized by Him.
5- The Holy Spirit in the form of a dove,
Was seen coming upon Him.
The voice of the Father from above,
Declared that Christ is His beloved Son.
6- He bore in His Body all our sins,
Died on the cross and was buried.
Once we're baptized we die with Him,
And rise free from all of our sins.
