« Prev When Jesus to the Jordan came Next »

ἐν Ἰορδάνῃ, βαπτιζομένου σου Κύριε,

ἡ τῆς Τριάδος ἐφανερώθη προσκύνησις·

Epiphany, January 6

tr., John Brownlie




When Jesus to the Jordan came

To honour there the rite divine,

Then, to the world, His awful claim

Was witnessed by the Godhead Trine.


From heaven the Father’s voice declared

His pleasure and paternal love;

And lo! the Holy Ghost appeared,

And wore the likeness of a Dove.


Thrice holy, Jesus Christ, art Thou,

By Father and by Spirit blessed;

We see Thee at the Jordan now,

And hear Thy Godhead there expressed.


Now to the Father glory be,

And to the Son beloved by God,

And to the Spirit, endlessly,

In heaven and all the earth abroad.
