Though a leader of the people – yet blind was he
By customs and traditions benighted
And so it was at night he came
Was mere convenience or to avoid “shame?”
“You are a teacher – sent by God good –
For you do such things – no mere man could. . . .”
“Wait just a moment,” Jesus did say –
“To be born again, is the only way.”
“‘Born again?’ How can that be?
Return to the womb – when you’re as old as me?”
“How is it that you a leader of men,
Cannot my words – comprehend?
Be born not by flesh – but in Spirit true
This is the thing that men must do.”
And so Nicodemus went away –
His life forever – was changed that day.
John 3: 1-21
