Do you remember how you felt when you kissed your brand new bride
Or the feeling that ran through you when you held your new born child
And when he called you daddy did you feel ten feet tall
Well, I heard about a man who must have had the greatest thrill of all.

John was just an ordinary man like you and me
And he did lotta preaching near the Sea of Galilee
Well, he must have been a pretty good preacher
'Cause he sure could tell the news
But he said there's a man coming after me and I can't tie his shoes.

I wonder how John felt when he baptized Jesus
How did he feel when Jesus came and said let it be done
I wonder how John felt when he led him in the water
Don't you know it was a blessin' to baptize God's only son.

John talked to a lot of people and many saw the light
But what about walking up and shaking hands with Jesus Christ
I wonder if he trembled when he first saw the man
Don't you know he felt the spirit when he touched the Master's hand.

I wonder how John felt when he baptized Jesus
How did he feel when Jesus came and said let it be done
I wonder how John felt when he led him in the water
Don't you know it was a blessin' to baptize God's only son.

I wonder how John felt when he baptized Jesus
How did he feel when Jesus came and said let it be done
I wonder how John felt when he led him in the water
Don't you know it was a blessin' to baptize God's only son...
