Baptism, and the temptation of Jesus

Collaboration by Lisa, and Peter Duggan Baptism, and temptation of Jesus The Sun shone down on the river Jordan As the Baptist John, stood there He was a very holy man Who spent his life in prayer Today it was his day of days The man from Galilee He came he to that river Jordan Our prophet then to see. Our prophet John did baptize him This Jesus, Gods own son And as he came out of the water And the deed it had been done The sky did open up it seems As the holy spirit came down Like a dove the spirit came to him And flew above the ground. This voice from heaven spoke these words “You are my own dear son And I be so well pleased with thee You be my own sweet one And then that spirit bade lord Jesus To go he to the desert And there old Satan tested him His power to assert. Lord Jesus stayed there in this desert Forty days and forty nights He lived there with the wild beasts And all those angels bright Took care of the holy son of God Were with him all the way And guided him through everything Until the last long day.
