Come Sinners View

Come, sinners, view the Lamb of God,
Wounded and dying, bathed in blood!
Behold His side, and venture near,
The well of endless life is here.

Here I forget my cares and pains,
I drink yet still my thirst remains;
Only the fountainhead above,
Can satisfy the thirst of love.

His thorns and nails pierce through my heart,
In ev’ry groan I bear a part;
I view His wounds with streaming eyes:
But see! He bows His head and dies!

Oh that I thus could always feel!
Lord, more and more Your love reveal!
Then my glad tongue shall loud proclaim
The grace and glory of Your name.

John Newton, 1725-1807

  1. Beautiful, Grace.

    I love that verse, Psalm 42:1-2. The song from those words is wonderful as well.

    Did you take this photo while in Mexico?

    Thanks for posting!

  2. How long were you able to stay there in Mexico? Did you hold a conference there as well?

    Have a wonderful day,
    Abigail

  3. We were there for about 10 days and had a wonderful time. Yes, we spoke at a family camp. If you’d like, you can see reports if you look back to the posts I put up last December and November.

  4. Grace i just saw the movie Son of God, it is excellent, i also had a debate with my daughters friend on evolution/ creation, 2 weeks ago, he saw the Ken Ham debate, so i told him my bottom line is that the Bible is true, and God can do anything, he was listening, that’s all i can say! love always, Bobbie
