BORN AND BORN AGAINAmid the quiet stillness of life in motion A cry is heard and the silence is broken. Amid the thunderous worship in heaven A song is heard for joyous celebration. Saddled with cares and troubles mixture The cries echo louder at departure. Whilst songs of joy and songs of sorrow Will walk the freed into his morrow. Of earth’s the calling and of earth’s the name To do its bidding and follow its fame. Of Spirit’s beckoned, on the Word founded Of His Blood united, the world’s hounded. Every step forward, new dreams unfolded Conformed to its ways, in its pattern molded.
Every step forward, a milestone achieved From the valley of death is heaven perceived. The laurels, the applause, yet again silenced For earth’s sad homage to the grave acquiesced. The battle is over though none conquered Wounded and weary, to Rest entered. These are the born and the born again Earth’s two children, heaven’s single gain. Though death conceived, its womb swollen Gave birth to wind to fan its fiery destination. @@@@@@@@@@@@@@
