Tone Four

The river Jordan once turned back before the mantle of Elisha, after Elijah had been taken up into heaven, and the waters were divided on this side and on that: the stream became a dry path before him, forming a true figure of the baptism whereby we pass over the changeful course of life.  Christ has appeared in the Jordan to sanctify the waters.

第四調

昔者以利亞奔天

以利沙操衣水擊

滔滔約但河驟息

水牆擘開顯乾地

於焉預表聖洗禮

基督受洗約但河

聖軀無罪將水清

吾人效主齊進河
