Born in the image of his Son,

A new peculiar race.
3 The Spirit, like some heavenly wind,

Breathes on the sons of flesh;
Creates anew the carnal mind,

And forms the man afresh. mf 4 Our quickened souls awake, and rise,

From the long sleep of death;
On heavenly things we fix our eyes,

And praise employs our breath.

Without a bottom, or a shore.
