I gave you my heart
In exchange for a brand new start
Lord, then you made me clean
And you set me apart
You see I was in the dark
But you're the bright and morning star
Oh with your amazing grace
You put a smile upon my face

Because
When the son died
He didn't die forever
Put him in a tomb
And three days later
He died on a cross
And he rose again
Dipped me in his blood
And washed away my sins

Sins, sins, eh, eh, ah
Thank the lord I'm born again gain gain
Ay ay, ay, ay

I gave you my heart
In exchange for a brand new start
Lord, then you made me clean
And you set me apart
You see I was in the dark
But he's the bright and morning star
Oh with your amazing grace
You put a smile upon my face

Because
When the son died
He didn't die forever
Put him in a tomb
And three days later
He died on a cross
And he rose again
Dipped me in his blood
And washed away my sins

Sins, sins, eh, eh, ah
Thank the lord I'm born again gain gain
Ay ay, ay, ay

Her daddy been gone
Her momma left when she was seven
Stuck with relatives
She didn't know, is there a heaven?
"Wish I could grow wings
Fly away from this place"
Thats what she told her pastor
Wiping tears from her face
But every time you cry
The lord felt your pain
Put a fist in the air
If you ready for change
The race is not given
To the swift or to the strong
You got to endure it
I'm telling you to hold on
Come on

When the son died
He didn't die forever
Put him in a tomb
And three days later
He died on a cross
And he rose again
Dipped me in his blood
And washed away my sins

Sins, sins, eh, eh, ah
Thank the lord I'm born again gain gain
Ay ay, ay, ay

Because
When the son died
He didn't die forever
Put him in a tomb
And three days later
He died on a cross
And he rose again
Dipped me in his blood
And washed away my sins

Sins, sins, eh, eh, ah
Thank the lord I'm born again gain gain
Ay ay, ay, ay, ay, ay

    My InterpretationI like how on the line 'dipped me in his blood' on the second chorus it kinda sounds like 'dipped me in rhiannas blood', like the singer of 'Umbrella'

    I think the point of this song is that Coffey feels like God is an Umbrella. The Rhianna's version she says, 'There's room for you under my Umbrella-ella-ella'. In this version, this seems like the sort of thing God might say - there's room for you beneath this protection.

    The problem is Rhianna's song is a love song. Human love and Gods love are very different. Coffey's implied metaphor of God as an umbrella, is misconceived. Not only does he struggle to fit in his lyrics 'he didnt die forever', his conception of God particularly gripping. God isn't a shelter, a yellow umbrella with a bendy handle. He's a storm. pulling umbrellas inside out. The Christian discourse says that we can't hide from his love.

    The lord felt your pain
    Put a fist in the air
    If you ready for change

    What's with the violence Coffey? It was Judas who wanted to fight the Romans to defend the Isreal. Jesus taught love, that all (wo)men are brothers and sisters.

    The race is not given
    To the swift or to the strong
    You got to endure it

    This sort of 'grin and bare it attitude' makes for a heavy religion, with weight on ones shoulder how can we rise to the kingdom of heaven.

    I'm being critical...I actually think this song is well funny. Long live Xian covers of pop songs!!!
