Description

SATB (some divisi), solos, a cappella. One of our SJMP favorites! English text with a Latin refrain from a Medieval carol. Chantlike and not at all difficult - a really terrific anthem for the Baptism of Jesus.

Jesus autem hodie regressus est a Jordane
[Jesus again today returned to the Jordan.]

When Jesus Christ baptised was,
The Holy Ghost descended with grace;
The Father's voice was heard in this place:
Hic est filius meus, ipsum intende.
[This is my Son, listen to him]

Jesus autem hodie regressus est a Jordane.

There were three Persons and one Lord,
The Son baptised with one accord,
The Father said this blessed word:
Hic est filius meus, ipsum intende.

Jesus autem hodie regressus est a Jordane.

Now, Jesu, as thou art both God and Man,
And were baptised in from Jordan,
At our last end we pray thee, say then:
Hic est filius meus, ipsum intende.

Jesus autem hodie regressus est a Jordane.
