As Spring blooms all around me
I'm reminded of freedom,
Of new birth, of new life
Just as in God's Kingdom.


The door to heaven opened wide
And a fresh new beginning was felt,
Throughout my spirit and body
When at the altar I knelt.


As I gave my life to Jesus
My burdens lifted away,
I became brand new in Christ
On that miraculously wonderful day.


My life has never been the same
Since heaven's doors opened wide,
As long as I remember to pray
And to keep Jesus by my side.



My Spring has bloomed around me
I am completely free,
Since my new beginning
I can just love being me.


For I'm a much loved child of God,
Loved beyond any measure on earth.
All because my beloved Jesus,
Died so I could have new birth.


Each year I watch Spring bloom,
And my heart feels light and free.
I'm reminded of God's wonderful love,
For all the world...and me.
