Come Sinners, View The Lamb Of God

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

Here I forget my cares and pains I drink yet still my thirst remains; Only the fountain-head 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.

Text: John Newton, 1725-1807; Music: Gregory Wilbur, 2012
