Music: “Come, O Sinner”

This song from Sovereign Grace Ministries (written by Jordan Kauflin) highlights the Lord Jesus’ work on the cross for us as sinners. The writer beckons sinners to come look at Jesus there, as if they were actually there in that moment when He was bearing the wrath of God for us. And when, by faith, we behold such a display of grace, we will exclaim along with the writer: “Oh the wonder of this awesome scene, where our Savior bleeds! Oh the power of the love of the God. Come and stand in awe!”

COME, O SINNER

Come, O sinner, come and see
Christ the Lord upon a tree;
See the crown of thorns adorn the King
Who labors to breathe in agony.
Come, O sinner, come and see
What our God became to set us free.

Come, O sinner, come and mourn,
For He calls your sin His own;
Do you feel the weight of justice served?
He suffers the wrath that you deserve.
Come, O sinner, come and mourn,
For He bears the curse for all you’ve done.

Oh, the wonder of this awesome scene
where our Savior bleeds!
Oh, the power of the love of God!
Come and stand in awe.

Come, O sinner, come rejoice,

Mercy fills this place of scorn.
For He dies to save His enemies,
That all who draw near may know His peace.
Come, O sinner, come rejoice,
Through the death of Christ death is destroyed!

Oh, the wonder of this awesome scene

where our Savior bleeds!
Oh, the power of the love of God!
Come and stand in awe.
