1 My heart glows with rapture, my cup runneth o’er,
Such joy, so transporting, I ne’er knew before;
It flows thro’ my soul from God’s heavenly store,
For I have been born again.

Chorus:
I’ll sing it and tell it wherever I go,
I want all to hear it, I want all to know,
The joy of salvation that makes the heart glow,
For I have been born again.

2 I know I’m redeemed, I’ve the witness within,
That Jesus has saved me and cleansed me from sin;
And now I’m rejoicing and living in Him,
For I have been born again. [Chorus]

3 I love my dear Savior, His work I will do;
I love all God’s people, I love sinners, too;
I love now the way of the cross to pursue,
For I have been born again. [Chorus]

4 I now have communion with God every day,
He graciously listens, and hears when I pray;
His smiles rest upon me, I know He is mine,
For I have been born again. [Chorus]

5 I have a bright prospect of glory divine,
For Jesus is with me, I know He is mine;
And some day in glory with Him I shall shine,
For I have been born again. [Chorus]

Rufus H. McDaniel was ordained in the Christian church in 1873. He found much joy in church music. He began writing hymns in the 1880's. He wrote, "I feel in my soul that God has something for me to do in brightening the experience of struggling souls. My chief desire is to be a blessing, if possible, to my fellow-men through these hymns and thereby glorify God in the name of his dear son 'whose I am and whom I serve.'"
