Sinner, see yon light

Representative Text

1 Sinner, see yon light
Shining clear and bright
From the cross of Calvary
Where the Saviour died,
And from his side
Flowed the blood that sets us free.

Refrain:
Come away, come away,
To the cross for refuge flee;
See the Saviour stands
With his outstretched hands:
Salvation he offers to thee.

2 See, the Saviour stands
With his wounded hands,
And he calls aloud to thee:
I for thee life gave,
Thy soul to save,
Now thy heart O give to me!

3 Come away to him
And confess thy sin,
Come to him who died for thee;
To his feet draw near,
With heart sincere,
And from sin he’ll set thee free.
