Lyrics

I WAS BORN-AGAIN IN THE FALL OF 1980
IN A LITTLE TOWN IN SOUTHWEST MANITOBA
GOD TOOK AWAY MY SIN, AND GAVE ME PEACE WITHIN
SINCE THAT DAY I'VE NEVER, BEEN THE SAME

I GOT SAVED THROUGH THE MIGHTY WORD OF GOD
THAT TAUGHT ME HOW TO LIVE FOR HIM EACH DAY
IT TAUGHT ME HOW TO PRAY, AND HOW TO WALK HIS WAY
THE PASTOR HELPED ME UNDERSTAND IT BETTER

WHEN SUNDAY CAME I'D BE THE FIRST IN LINE
TO SIT UP FRONT, WHERE THE BLESSINGS FLOW
WE'D WORSHIP AND ADORE, THE ONE WHO SAVED OUR SOULS
FILLED WITH POWER TO FACE THE COMING BATTLES

MANY TIMES I'VE HEARD MY FATHER SPEAK
LOVING ME AND GUIDING ME EACH DAY
EACH DAY I WALK WITH HIM, AND DAILY TALK WITH HIM
EV'RY DAY IS DIFFERENT; FILLED WITH WONDER

WELL I'M GLAD TO KNOW THAT I'M A CHILD OF GOD
BUT I STILL REMEMBER WHAT MY LIFE WAS LIKE
BURIED DEEP IN SIN, WITH NO PEACE WITHIN
I'M GLAD TO KNOW THAT I'M A CHILD OF GOD

A LOT OF THINGS HAVE CHANGED SINCE, WAY BACK WHEN
PEOPLE, CHURCHES, PLACES WHERE I'VE BEEN
BUT ONE THING HASN'T CHANGED, THAT'S GOD'S GREAT LOVE FOR ME
AND MEM'RIES WHEN I BECAME A CHILD OF GOD

COME TODAY, BECOME A CHILD OF GOD
YOU'LL BE GLAD TO BE A CHILD OF GOD
