About "I'm Born Again"

 

 

I Wrote this one in the 80's in Nashville.  I was singing and praising Him, so full of joy that He erased my sins.  He gave the song to me in minutes.

Lyrics

 

I used to moan and groan and sing the blues

‘Till Jesus came along and changed my tune

Now, I’m never, ever gonna stop

I’m gonna sing it from the mountaintop

I’ve been saved

There’ve been some changes made

 

I’m born again - I’m alive in Christ

Praise the Lord, I’ve been born twice

Living a life that has no end

Telling the world - I’m born again

 

I used to carry such a heavy load

Travel down a dark and dreary dead end road

I was overcome by sin

‘Till I cried out and the Lord stepped in

I’m amazed - By His amazing grace

 

I’m born again - I’m alive in Christ

Glory to God I’ve been born twice

Living a life that has no end

Telling the world - I’m born again

 

I called on the name of Jesus

I said Lord, I receive

The next thing I know, the Holy Ghost

Done jumped all over me!

 

I’m born again - I’m alive in Christ

Don’t deserve it but it sure feels nice

Living a life that has no end

Telling the world - I’m born again

I’m alive in Christ

 

My sweet Jesus has paid the price

Living a life that has no end

Telling the world - I’m born again
