1 Come and see the Saviour’s beauty
Come and see, come and see;
Learn from Him the path of duty,
Come and see, come and see.

On the cross of Calvary,
Where He died for you and me;
On the radiant throne above,
See His grace, His power and love.

2 In the blessed Bible story,
Come and see, come and see;
See His wondrous grace and glory,
Come and see, come and see. [Refrain]

3 In the manger, poor and lowly,
Come and see, come and see;
In His life, so true and holy,
Come and see, come and see. [Refrain]

4 In His works of love and kindness,
Come and see, come and see;
Healing sin, disease, and blindness,
Come and see, come and see. [Refrain]

5 In His saving power around us,
Come and see, come and see;
Jesus sought us, sought and found us,
Come and see, come and see. [Refrain]
