Come, Believers
Words & Music: Cameron Gray, 2005. ©2005 Rough Harbor Music

O come, believers, sing the praises
Of my everlasting Lord
O come and hymn my holy Jesus
Who has washed me in His blood
Wretch, and to every evil prone,
In all my transgressions dead,
Yet, to claim me for His own,
In my place my Savior bled.

He takes the wounded to His healing,
His mercy spilled is not in vain.
Salvation poured out, flowing freely for
Helpless and needy, blind and lame.
His depth of grace no soul can sound,
O Lamb of God, for sinners slain!
That cleansing flood’s sweet source is found
At fountains flowing from His veins.

O—Come, believers!
O—Sing His praise.
O—Come, believers!

Abounding Grace, O Love Redeeming,
Unchain my tongue to sing Thy praise!
I’ll join the songs of saints beseeching:
“O speed the day we see Thy face!”
In this my soul’s sole consolation;
In this my hope, my joy abide:
What shall I trust for my salvation?
None but Christ and Him crucified.
(Repeat Chorus)

O come, believers, sing the praises
Of my everlasting Lord.

Wrote this in late 2005, when I first started reading the Gadsby Hymnal. Recorded sometime early 2006 in my bedroom.
