Ye Must Be Born Again
Words by William T. Sleeper
Music by George C. Stebbins

John 3:3
"Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee,
Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God."

          A ruler once came to Jesus by night
          To ask Him the way of salvation and light;
          The Master made answer in words true and plain,
          "Ye must be born again."

            Refrain
            "Ye must be born again,
            Ye must be born again,
            I verily, verily, say unto thee,
            Ye must be born again."

          Ye children of men, attend to the Word,
          So solemnly uttered by Jesus the Lord;
          And let not this message to you be in vain,
          "Ye must be born again."

            Refrain
            "Ye must be born again,
            Ye must be born again,
            I verily, verily, say unto thee,
            Ye must be born again."

          O ye who would enter that glorious rest,
          And sing with the ransomed the song of the blest,
          The life everlasting if ye would obtain,
          "Ye must be born again."

            Refrain
            "Ye must be born again,
            Ye must be born again,
            I verily, verily, say unto thee,
            Ye must be born again."

          A dear one in heaven thy heart yearns to see,
          At the beautiful gate may be watching for thee,
          Then list to the note of this solemn refrain,
          "Ye must be born again."

            Refrain
            "Ye must be born again,
            Ye must be born again,
            I verily, verily, say unto thee,
            Ye must be born again."
