Come and see...

Picture by Chatterbox

Come and see, come and see
Come and see the King of love
See the purple robe and crown of thorns He wears
Soldiers mock, rulers sneer
As He lifts the cruel cross
Lone and friendless now He climbs towards the hill

We worship at Your feet
Where wrath and mercy meet
And a guilty world is washed
By love's pure stream
For us He was made sin
Oh, help me take it in
Deep wounds of love cry out 'Father, forgive'
I worship, I worship
The Lamb who was slain.

Come and weep, come and mourn
For your sin that pierced Him there...

for the rest of the lyrics to this beautiful song visit:
Graham Kendrick's site



But he was pierced for our transgressions,
he was crushed for our iniquities;
the punishment that brought us peace was upon him,
and by his wounds we are healed.

We all, like sheep, have gone astray,
each of us has turned to his own way;
and the LORD has laid on him
the iniquity of us all.

He was oppressed and afflicted,
yet he did not open his mouth;
he was led like a lamb to the slaughter,
and as a sheep before her shearers is silent,
so he did not open his mouth.

Isaiah 53:5-7

  1. Loved the art work as well as the hymn. The promise is fulfilled and all who believe will celebrate on Sunday.
