There was one who came by night,
Searching for the truth the light.
To him Christ gave the glad refrain,
Trust in me and be born again.
Born again! How can that be?
Too great a task for such as me:
And so he cried, "Oh please explain,
How can I a mortal be born again?"
Oh not of flesh but now of God,
Too long the paths of sin you've trod,
Only by faith in Jesus then,
Can any sinner be born again.
Born again, oh what a joy.
Oh what peace to on Him rely.
It ope's the door to life e'ermore
Trust in Him be born again.
* This is a song written when I was fourteen.
There is another similar in words but I hadn't heard it prior to writing this one.
