A ruler once came to Jesus by night

Hymns #366
A ruler once came to Jesus by night,
To ask Him the way of salvation and light;
The Master made answer in words true and plain,

“Ye must be born again !”
“Ye must be born again !”
“Ye must be born again !”
I verily, verily say unto thee —
“Ye must be born again !”

2) Ye children of men, attend to the word
So solemnly uttered by Jesus, the Lord;
And let not this message to you be in vain :
“Ye must be born again !”

3) O ye who would enter this glorious rest,
And sing with the ransomed the song of the blest —
The life everlasting if ye would obtain,
“Ye must be born again !”

4) A dear one in heaven thy heart yearns to see,
At the beautiful gate may be watching for thee ;
When list to the note of this solemn
“Ye must be born again !”
