Ye Must Be Born Again Lyrics

Author: William T Sleeper

1 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.” (Refrain)

3 O ye who would enter that glorious rest,
And sing with the ransomed the song of the blest;
The life everlasting if ye would obtain,
“Ye must be born again.” (Refrain)

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

Ye Must Be Born Again Hymn Story

“Ye Must Be Born Again” is a hymn that was written by William T Sleeper. The tune is called “A ruler once came to Jesus by Night”.

This song is based on the Story of Nicodemus in John 3. Nicodemus was a Pharisee who visited Jesus at night. He was a member of the Sanhedrin. The Sanhedrin was the supreme council and tribunal of the Jews during postexilic times headed by a High Priest and having religious, civil, and criminal jurisdiction.

It is during this visit that Jesus told Nicodemus he needs to be born again to be saved. When Nicodemus what he meant Jesus told him that that will happen through the Holy Spirit and water. And he then Jesus goes on to say one of the most well known verses of the bible found in John 3:16- “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life
