You Must Be Born Again

This song is by Dorothy Norwood and appears on the album Look What They've Done to My Child (1981).

Long ago I didn't know nothing about Jesus and His love
I'd heard about it but I never felt it, this manna that falls from above
When this life of sin I could no longer stand
I asked my mother, "Mama, how can I get to know the man?"
She said, "You must be, don't you see, you gotta be born again"

Long ago I didn't know nothing about Jesus and His love
I'd heard about it but I never felt it, this manna that falls from above
When this life of sin I could no longer stand
I asked my mother, "Mother, how can I get to know the man?"
She said, "You must be, don't you see, you gotta be born again"

Oh, you must have that fire and Holy Ghost that burning thing that keeps the prayer wheels turn
Than kind of religion you can not conceal
It makes you move
It makes you shout
It makes you cry if it's real

I've got my hand in the winding chain
My soul's been anchored in my Jesus' name
You know I'm filled within, free from sin
I know that I've been born again

If you're looking for something to ease your troubled mind
Don't go to friends, don't go to loved ones
For no help in them you'll find
In this world of sin I could no longer stand
I asked my mother, "Mother, how can I get to know the man?"
She said, "You must be, don't you see, you gotta be born again"

Oh, you must have that fire and Holy Ghost that burning thing y'all that keep the prayer wheels turn
Than kind of religion you can not conceal
It makes you move
It makes you shout
It makes you cry if it's real

I've got my hand in the winding chain
My soul's been anchored in my Jesus' name
I'm filled within, free from sin
I know that I've been born again

You must have that fire and Holy Ghost that burning in me that'll keep the prayer wheels turn
Than kind of religion you can not conceal
It makes you move, shout
It'll make you cry if it's real

I've got my hand right in the winding chain
My soul's been anchored in my Jesus' name
I'm filled within, free from sin
I know that I've been born again

I've been born again
I've been washed in the blood of the lamb
My soul's ??? in Jesus' name
I've been dyed in the Lord
I've been baptized
I've been born again
I remember that day, I remember it well
He saved my soul I can tell
