Lent XII

Our Lord opened up Baptism — in the midst of Jordan the blessed river.— The height and the depth rejoiced in Him — He brings forth the first fruits of His peace from the water — for they are first fruits, the fruits of Baptism. — The good God in His compassion will bring to pass — that His peace shall be first fruits on earth.

Ephrem the Syrian, Hymn 11 on Epiphany.
