"Hymn on the New Birth"
also called "Conversion"
excerpt (hymn) from:
"Hymns and Spiritual Songs"
Reverend Samson Occom (Occum)
Wak'd by the Gospel's joyful sound,
Surpris'd I was, but could not tell
Then to the law I flew for help,
God's justice now I did behold,
I heard some tell how Christ did give
But as my soul, with dying breath,
Come, needy sinners, hear me tell
Are you a sinner? so am I;
O come, the love of Jesus try,
O come to Jesus, sinners all,
Hymn from "Hymns and Spiritual Songs" by an unknown author.
"How sweet are thy words unto my taste! yea, sweeter than honey to my mouth!" Psa 119:103 KJV
