Birthright


I am covered in the blood
I am washed by the water
I belong to the King of Kings
I am reborn

Now His joy is my birthright
Now His peace is my birthright
Now His love is my birthright
Now His presence is my birthright

No matter how dizzy I get
No matter how many things I forget
No matter what the enemy tells me
No matter how little energy I have

I may have been robbed of physical things
I may have been robbed of mental things
But I can never be robbed of eternity
I will never be robbed of the most important things

The peaks and valleys of my thirty nine years
Escorted by the Holy Spirit
I am a child of God
His kingdom is my birthright
