Born From Above

While shepherds watched their sheep near Bethlehem
The glory of the Lord shone down on them.
An angel said: ‘Fear not, for unto you is born
A Saviour who is Jesus Christ the Lord.’
The Lord our God came down from heaven above
To draw all men to Him, for He is love.
Our sin should bring us death, and lost would we have been
But Jesus came to take our sin away.
The Lord has said: ‘You must be born again.’
So if you’re not, religion’s all in vain.
But this might be the day, where unto you is born
A Saviour who is Jesus Christ the Lord.
In reply Jesus declared, “I tell you the truth,
no one can see the kingdom of God unless he is born again.”
