201 (C.M.) Joseph Hoskins

Lost in the ruins of the fall

I lay in awful night,

'Til Great Jehovah changed my heart,

And gave me heav'nly light.

Born of the Lord, I rose from death,

Flew to the Prince of Peace;

He loved the risings of my soul,

And showed a smiling face.

Born of the Lord, I feel a pow'r

That draws to Jesus' blood,

Loosens my soul from chain of guilt,

And leads it to my God.

Born of the Lord, I can't allow

That sin should rule my heart;

But long that ev'ry evil thought

Might evermore depart.

Born of the Lord, my happy soul

In flames of love arise;

Love my dear Father and His flock,

And love His holy ways.

Born of the Lord, I soon shall fly,

Fly to His bright abode;

Rise to the honors of His throne,

And live and reign with God.
