Never Be The Same (The Baptism Song)

This song was birthed at a songwriting retreat organised by Resound Worship.

I enjoyed writing about a theme where there is a bit of a ‘gap’ in terms of modern worship songs, as there are not very many of them about.

Repent – Believe – Be Baptised: This helped me to structure the song with each section dealing with each idea in turn which resulted in a lovely song that is appropriate for water baptism.

Never Be The Same
(The Baptism Song)

CCLI number: 7133022

Turn my back on the past
Leave my old ways behind
Jesus, I will follow You

For You died in my place
And You rose from the grave
Jesus, I believe it’s true

Wash me in the waters
Wash my sin away
Cleanse me with Your Spirit
As I am raised with Christ today

I will never be the same
I’m made new in Jesus’ name
I will never be the same again
