Our country was founded on Christian principles: To become a nation that would spread the gospel message. This was the most important reason behind the framing of our constitution.
In my opinion, the lyrics to this song speak the gospel more succintly and profoundly than any other Christian song. When I die, this will be the only song I will allow to be sung in my memory! Hallelujah!
COME YE SINNERS POOR AND NEEDY
Fernando Ortega and John Andrew SchreinerCome, ye sinners, poor and needy Weak and wounded, sick and sore. Jesus ready, stands to save you Full of pity, love and power. I will arise and go to Jesus He will embrace me in His arms. In the arms of my dear Savior Oh, there are ten thousand charms. Come ye thirsty, come and welcome God’s free bounty glorify. True belief and true repentance Every grace that brings you nigh. Come, ye weary, heavy laden Lost and ruined by the fall. If you tarry ’til you’re better You will never come at all. I will arise and go to Jesus He will embrace me in His arms. In the arms of my dear Savior Oh there are ten thousand charms Feel Him prostrate in the garden On the ground your Master lies. On the bloody tree behold Him Sinner, will this not suffice? Lo, the incarnate God ascended Pleads the merit of His blood. Venture on Him, Venture wholly Let no other trust intrude. I will arise and trust in Jesus He will embrace me in His arms. In the arms of my dear Savior Oh there are ten thousand charms.
