(Mark 11: 1-11)

Cousin of Jesus standing in the river
Sent by God with words to deliver
Then Jesus came.

Perfect One, the Son didn’t have to
He came to show us just what we should do
In His name.

Cousin who held his kin
Gently pulled Him in
Beneath the water.

A burst of light and a simple dove
And God said, “This is my beloved Son
Who pleases me.”

Cousin of Jesus standing in the river
Baptized men to show love for the Father
Even His only Son.

Cousin who had cried
In the wilderness for the One who lived and died
For our sins.

Cousin of Jesus standing in the river
Showed the way that we might someday
Be with the Father.

And He will say, “This pleases Me”
He will say, “This pleases Me”
Cousin of Jesus standing in the river.
