To: Salvation

Jesus, walking into the water, fully needing no baptism, marks that ritual as THE sign of initiation into the Christian walk, sanctifying and blessing the waters as the tool for his promise of salvation.

Soon, he will begin to teach the good news about God's kingdom, and then the long dark walk to Calvary.

Let us listen to the voice of the Father, sending down his Spirit in the form of a dove - This is my beloved son, in whom I am well pleased - and hearing it, be like John, knowing that we behold the Lamb of God who takes away the sins of the world. Then like Andrew, let us arise follow him!

A Ukranian Theophany hymn. It consists of additional verses added to the popular Christmas koledy, Nebo i Zeml'a.

To Jordan's water, to Jordan's water
Christ comes to be baptized.
John the Forerunner, John the Forerunner,
Now humbly steps aside.
Christ Our Lord is baptized.
Salvation is now realized.
Skies of heaven open,
God the Father spoken,
O'er the Jordan a Dove,
Holy Spirit of Love -
Revelation from above.

Three Persons in God, Three Persons in God,
Are now revealed to us.
Father and Son, Father and Son,
Holy Spirit - One God.
Christ Our Lord is baptized.
Salvation is now realized.
Skies of heaven open,
God the Father spoken,
O'er the Jordan a Dove,
Holy Spirit of Love -
Revelation from above.

Saint John the Baptist, Saint John the Baptist,
Foretells release today.
The Lamb of God, the Lamb of God,
Will wash our sins away.
Christ Our Lord is baptized.
Salvation is now realized.
Skies of heaven open,
God the Father spoken,
O'er the Jordan a Dove,
Holy Spirit of Love -
Revelation from above.
