A Jew Born Anew
by Marty Goetz

Album: Psalm Enchanted Evening
by Marty Goetz


I had a Bar Mitzvah when I was thirteen
Greatest Bar Mitzvah that youíve ever seen.
The temple on the corner of Mayfield and Lee
Was filled with my friends and my family
All of them as proud can be,
With catering far as the eye could see,
Complete with a chopped liver statue of me.

Now they ask me how I can go so wrong
And why all of a sudden Iím singing this song,
They say ďSon youíre deserting your fathers of old,
So why donít you just come back to the fold,
Youíre such a nice boy or werenít you told
That when you were born they broke the mold
So whaddya need with this stuff ya been sold?Ē

But itís a far, far better thing that I do,
Than I have ever done, when I believed what they said was true
That Yeshua is Godís only son
Well Iíve done many things and I donít do a few
But this one thing I do makes Me a Jew Born Anew,
Yes, through and through Iím a Jew Born Anew

So Hallelujah to Yeshua from a Jew who never knew ya,
Could come to die for a schmo like I was,
Just so I could win the prize
and be with my Messiah in the skies!

They say on Bar Mitzvah day I became a man,
Iíve tried to live that way, done the best that I can,

But Iíve been worried since way back when
ĎCause Iíve never done anything great since then,
And though I could live Ďtil a hundred and ten
And never have need of a fountain pen,
I might never succeed in the sight of men,
And they wonít let me get Bar Mitzvahed again!

But itís a far, far better thing that I do,
Than I have ever done, when I believed what they said was true
That Yeshua is Godís only son
Well Iíve done many things and I donít do a few
But this one thing I do makes Me a Jew Born Anew,
Yes, through and through Iím a Jew Born Anew

So Hallelujah to Yeshua from a Jew who never knew yaí,
Could come to die for a real schlemiel
When I couldnít tell you were the long awaited Holy One of Israel!

So all of you who donít know Yeshua, let me introduce Him to yaí.
Heís the blessed Messiah, the Lion of Judah
Who wants to do to ya what He did to me!
He came to live in a schlep like I was
Yep, itís true on Christmas morn,
The truest Jew that ever was, was born!

Lai, lai, lai, lai, lai,.............
..........thatís no lie, lie, lie, lie, lie, lie, lie, lie,
a Jew Born Anew Am I!!!!!!!!!!
