O Lord Jesus Christ,
in order to fulfill all righteousness,
you were baptized by John in the Jordan.
Clothe us with this same righteousness,
that as your baptized people,
we, too, may be called beloved children of your Father,
and because of you, know he is well pleased with us;
through your mercy, O our God,
you are blessed,
and live and govern all things,
now and forever.
