This Morning I Am Born Again
Sunny • on 12 years ago • 2 min read

This morning I was born again and a light shines on my land I no longer look for heaven in your deathly distant land I do not want your pearly gates don’t want your streets of gold This morning I was born again and a light shines on my soul

This morning I was born again, I was born again complete I stood up above my troubles and I stand on my two feet My hand it feels unlimited, my body feels like the sky I feel at home in the universe where yonder planets fly

This I was born again, my past is dead and gone This great eternal moment is my great eternal dawn Each drop of blood within me, each breath of life I breathe Is united with these mountains and the mountains with the seas

I feel the sun upon me, it’s rays crawl through my skin I breathe the life of Jesus and old John Henry in I give myself, my heart, my soul to give some friend a hand This morning I was born again, I am in the promised land

This morning I was born again and a light shines on my land I no longer look for heaven in your deathly distant land I do not want your pearly gates don’t want your streets of gold And I do not want your mansion for my heart is never cold.
