Born Again

Long I was a wanderer

Author: Peter Vogel
Published in 4 hymnals

Representative Text

1 Long was I a wand'rer,
Jesus now is mine;
Yes, I've found a Savior,
Human and divine,
High He lives in glory,
Low to earth He came,
Told the wondrous story,
Life in Jesus' name.

Then praise the Lord, my Savior,
Oh, praise His holy name;
I'll sing His praise forever,
For I am born again.

2 Equal with the Father,
Poor like man on earth,
Mighty as Creator,
Weak as babes at birth;
Hated and rejected,
Crucified to die;
Buried, ris'n, ascended,
Pleads my cause on high. [Chorus]

3 "I will ne'er forsake thee,"
Thus His promise stands;
"In my hands I'll bear thee
O'er the burning sands."
Full on Him relying,
Weakness is my strength;
Waiting, toiling, dying,
Heav'n is mine at length. [Chorus]

4 Sweet, oh, sweet the service,
Which to Him I give;
Hearken--come, dear sinner,
Now my soul doth live.
Taste the precious Savior--
Feel the joy divine;
Know the love unbounded,
Jesus now is mine. [Chorus]
