Born In The Spirit
Poem By Mary Wismer
Into the river I will wade,
There my sins are washed away
From the heaven's mercy stream,
Of the saviour's love for me.
I will rise from waters deep
Into the saving arms of God
I will sing salvation songs,
Jesus Christ Has set me free.
Blessed assurance, Jesus is mine.
O what a foretaste of glory divine!
Heir of salvation, purchase of God,
Born in His spirit, washed in his blood.
Perfect Submission, all is at rest,
I in my saviour am happy and blessed:
Watching and waiting, looking above,
filled with his goodness, lost in his love.
Perfect delight, Visions of rapture
burst on my sight: Angels descending
bring from above echoes of Mercy, whisper of Love.
