Born Again

Unending thanks is due the Father above,
for the grace which He has given
in sending His Spirit that Holy Dove
to call us to redemption.
Yes, He calls us to a holy love,
by fixing our eyes on heaven.
Overcoming the flesh that causes strife,
against this Spirit who bears new life.

For when first we are born
we are born to sin.
And, in this state we deserve God’s scorn.
Yet through the Spirit, we are born again,
transformed to a life that has new form.
A life that seeks to solely please Him,
with eyes fixed on eternity,
an eternity spent in His majesty.
