269 (C.M.) Wilson Thompson

By nature born to pain and death

O what a lot is this?

But born again, O glorious thought!

And born for endless bliss.

Born here an heir to grief and woe,

A rebel to my God;

But by the Spirit born again

For heaven's high abode.

Born here both dead, and blind, and deaf,

And bound with Satan's cord;

But born again to live and see,

And hear, and praise the Lord.
