Oh, Come

Recently, I was asked the question, "What are your favorite hymns?" As I thought, I realized that my favorite hymns all have a common theme:


"Oh come, all ye faithful, joyful and triumphant..."

"Oh come, Oh come, Emmanuel.  And ransom captive Israel..."

"Come ye sinners, poor and needy, weak and wounded sick and sore, Jesus ready stands to save you..."

"Come thou fount of every blessing, tune my heart to sing thy grace..."

"Oh come, let us adore him. Christ the Lord..."

Whether it is our cry toward Christ to come and save, or it is Christ's call toward us to come and die, the invitation to act and move in the direction of Christ is a common thread of hope in our journey.  

Come, Lord Jesus.
