5 Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God. 6 That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. 7 Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again. 8 The wind bloweth where it listeth, and thou hearest the sound thereof, but canst not tell whence it cometh, and whither it goeth: so is every one that is born of the Spirit. 9 Nicodemus answered and said unto him, How can these things be? 10 Jesus answered and said unto him, Art thou a master of Israel, and knowest not these things? 11 Verily, verily, I say unto thee, We speak that we do know, and testify that we have seen; and ye receive not our witness. 12 If I have told you earthly things, and ye believe not, how shall ye believe, if I tell you of heavenly things? 13 And no man hath ascended up to heaven, but he that came down from heaven, even the Son of man which is in heaven. 14 And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of man be lifted up: 15 That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life.(KJV)

As with Gladness Men of Old

1. As with gladness men of old 
Did the guiding star behold; 
As with joy they hailed its light, 
Leading onward, beaming bright, 
So, most gracious Lord, may we 
Evermore be led by Thee! 

2. As with joyful steps they sped, 
Savior, to Thy lowly bed, 
There to bend the knee before 
Thee whom heaven and earth adore, 
So may we with willing feet 
Ever seek Thy mercy-seat! 

3. As they offered gifts most rare 
At Thy cradle, rude and bare, 
So may we with holy joy, 
Pure and free from sin’s alloy, 
All our costliest treasures bring, 
Christ, to Thee, our heavenly King! 

4. Holy Jesus, every day 
Keep us in the narrow way; 
And when earthly things are past. 
Bring our ransomed souls at last 
Where they need no star to guide, 
Where no clouds Thy glory hide. 

5. In the heavenly country bright 
Need they no created light; 
Thou its Light, its Joy, its Crown, 
Thou its Sun which goes not down. 
There forever may we sing 
Alleluias to our King!
