|Sacred Jordan River|
John and Jesus
It all began in water
The two leaping and dipping within the
Later John pled no contest
As he poured the water over Jesus.
For even then he knew
He would not walk on it,
Transform it into wine,
Release it from his pierced heart;
But in that moment, at the Jordan, the water made them
One on the road to redemption.
