The Baptism of Jesus

English: Baptism of Jesus Christ

The clouds break open
Giving way to a brilliant ray of light
As the crowd stands in silent wonder
They witness a single dove in flight
The dove now descending from heaven
Lighting upon the head of the Son
Then a thunderous voice breaks the silence
Commanding the attention of everyone
The voice is the voice of the Father
Commending this obedient act by His Son
For this act was performed with the attitude
That the will of His Father be done
I must warn now that you not be blinded
That is, don’t be aesthetically deceived
For the story’s supreme value lies not in its wonder
If you dig there’s much more to receive
We know that the dove that lit upon Jesus
Was peace from the Father above
A peace sent via the Spirit
A manifestation of the Father’s love
So it was peace that lit upon Jesus
A Son with whom His Father was pleased.
Words that remarkably echo the angels song
That blessed night of the Nativity
For they sang “Glory to God in the highest,
And on earth peace among those with whom He is pleased!”
Thus, with this baptism there’s fulfillment
Of their songs incredible prophesy.
For it is only a life found within Jesus
That peace with God is achieved
So I sing, “Glory to God in the highest
Twas’ only by Jesus that salvation I received!”

~A Poem by Matthew Wynne~
