about

For my nephew Jeremiah, on the event of his birth. In utero, Jeremiah's nick name was 'Niko.' He was born on Sunday, March 17. (3-17) The day's scripture passage was John 3... the story of Nikodemus learning about spiritual rebirth. John 3:17: For God did not send his son into the world to condemn the world, no God sent his son to save us all.

lyrics

Before I formed you in the womb, I knew you.
Before you were born, I consecrated you. x2

It was just a normal day when Nicodemus came to visit Jesus.
He came at night because he didn't want his friends to know.
"Jesus, you must have God at your back, or you couldn't do these miracles I've seen." Well Jesus said to him,

You must be born again, if you want to enter in to the Kingdom of love.

Nicodemus asked, " How can this come to pass?"
Surely I cannot enter in, once again, into my mother's womb.
Jesus said to him, "I speak of spiritual rebirth,"
"John baptized you with water, but I baptize you with fire."

You must be born again, if you want to enter in to the Kingdom of love.

The wind blows where it pleases, so does the spirit. x3

As Moses lifted up the snake in the desert,
In the same way the Son of Man must be lifted up,
So that everyone who looks on him may have eternal life,
May have eternal life.

For God so love the world, he gave his one and only son,
So that whoever trust in him, will not perish but shall have
Eternal life, true life. And shall be reborn of the Lord.

But remember, in this metaphor, where you're
Escaping the womb of the physical world,
You're not the one doing the pushing,
All you've got to do is cry out.

You must be born again, if you want to enter in,
The wind blows where it pleases,
For God so loved the world, he sent his one and only son,
So that whoever trust in him, will not perish but shall have
Eternal life, true life.

For God did not send his son into the world to condemn the world, no God sent his son to save us all. x2

Before I formed you in the womb, I knew you.
Before you were born, I consecrated you. x2

It was just a normal day when Nicodemus came to bury Jesus.
