The Sinner Must Be Born Again (Ganges) 295

Tune: Bridgewater Collection, 1802
Treble & Alto: Genuine Church Music, 1832
Lyrics: Rev. Samson Occom, 1774
Meter: Common Particular Meter (8,8,6,8,8,6)
Awaked by Sinai’s awful sound,
My soul in guilt and thrall I found,
And knew not where to go;
O’erwhelmed with sin, with anguish slain,
The sinner must be born again
Or sink in endless woe.
