What Is The Difference?

      I have been born twice in my lifetime on this earth,
      but there is such a difference in my first and second birth.
      What is the difference of these you may say,
      I can tell you they're different in every way.

      Don't think I'm being silly when I say I didn't have anything
      to do with the first time when I was born to my mom and my dad,
      and I was the first little baby girl,
      and the third child that they had.

      I was taught by "words" to have respect for family and for others,
      and try to get along with my sister and brothers.
      Parents "examples" can sometimes be bad,
      and cause their little children to be sad.

      I was born again but it was different from the first time you see,
      I was given a choice of who my Father would be,
      It was the best choice that I ever made,
      and there's nothing that I would trade.

      My mother and father have already gone on,
      but with my heavenly Father I'm never alone.
      He loves me like I've never been loved before,
      He blesses and comforts me and does so much more

      If you want this born again experience you can have it too.
      What He did for me, He'll do the same for you.
      You were born on earth, but you will be born for heaven
      as soon as your sins are forgiven.

      Here's a prayer that you can say: Father forgive me today,
      search my heart and wash all my sins away.
      I confess to you that I am a sinner,
      with your forgiveness I can become a winner.
