Ye Must Be Born Again!

The way, the truth and the life!
The way, the truth and the life!

“Ye must be born again,” he said,
Raised from your tomb of sin and death;
Jesus, your ever-living Head,
He died to put in you His breath.

“Ye must be born again,” or stay,
Without the true and living Bread;
Far from His love and righteous way,
Lost and condemned, forever dead.

“Ye must be born again,” or be,
Faced with God’s all-consuming wrath;
Prepared to face the agony;
Of being lost eternally.

“Ye must be born again,” he said,
Jesus who loves and makes this plea;
Who wants you to, by him be led,
Cry, “God be merciful to me.”

(Tune: Duke St; Rimington; LM)
