1 Born of Adam, torn from Eden,
child of exile and the flood,
I was born again in Jesus,
crowned with glory through his blood.

2 Though creation lies in shackles,
forged on Satan's anvil grim,
there is freedom yet in Jesus
and redemption is in him.

3 Would you see the new day dawning,
healing all creation's loss?
Look into the face of Jesus,
fix your eyes upon the cross.

4 Listen ever for the trumpet,
O, you children of new birth,
for he comes to rule in triumph,
his new heaven, his new earth.
