Hear that?



It was the sound of me breathing a huge sigh of relief. My fantabulously wonderful and amazing husband has helped me to get the words of a song that's been bugging me for years to a level of bearability I can live with! Thanks J :D

It's a song for kids about a story in the Bible - a man called Nicodemus comes to see Jesus and they have a rather intriguing conversation. You can read it here if you don't know what I'm talking about.

What do you think? I'm still open to suggestions :)

Born Again

There was a man called Nicodemus who wanted to be good
So he tried and tried and tried and tried as hard as he could
To do everything right
But then one night
He talked to Jesus who explained that he hadn't understood
Jesus said

You must be born again,
You must be born again
Repent and believe,
God's Spirit receive
That's the way you're born again

"But I'm too old to be a baby, I can't go back to Mum
See I've grown and grown and grown, a big strong man I've become"
Nicodemus, be smart! You need a change of heart!
You should know all this stuff, how can you be so dumb?
Jesus said....

And now we've heard that if we really want to be God's friend
We mustn't try and try and try and try and try and pretend
That we've got the right stuff;
We're just not good enough
But in our place God gave His son, and on him we can depend
That's why....

It's better than the old version anyway!
