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.
