And he rejoiced upon the holy pool
For in the midst of the earth and heaven confessing the Christ
and treating the enemies arrogantly …
For the glory of the Lord encircled him
and his power will overshadow you.
Shout aloud to the Lord all the earth
because he appeared upon the earth, who was God before the ages, the Word.
Come, let us rejoice exceedingly and let us celebrate!
Come, let us meet the bridegroom, the one in Bethlehem,
the one who with the Father and the Holy Spirit
was invited to the wedding as a man and the water was changed into wine;
who gave sight to the blind one in Siloam;
who cleansed the leper by his word.
From five loaves into five thousands were satisfied
He went into the water of the Jordan,
the lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world,
to be baptized by the forerunner.
And the voice from the Father saying,
“This one is my beloved Son in whom I am well pleased.”~
We were filled with great joy upon seeing the Jordan
when the one born upon earth as a man appeared in it
and the forerunner himself listened to your voice saying,
“Let us complete the plans of the Father.”
“Like the Lord wanted,” said John

The mountains leaped like rams
and the hills like a lamb of the sheep.
As you arose from the Jordan
a voice has come from the sky to you
“This one is my beloved Son in whom I am well pleased.
