Why turn to the Lord? Because He is a God of mercy and not a God who seeks to destroy us.

     6 Seek ye the LORD while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near: 7 Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the LORD, and he will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon. 8 For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD. 9 For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.(KJV)

1. Drawn to the Cross, which Thou hast blest 
With healing gifts for souls distrest, 
To find in Thee my life, my rest, 
Christ Crucified, I come. 

2. Thou knowest all my griefs and fears, 
Thy grace abused, my misspent years; 
Yet now to Thee with contrite tears, 
Christ Crucified, I come. 

3. Wash me and take away each stain; 
Let nothing of my sin remain. 
For cleansing, though it be through pain, 
Christ Crucified, I come. 

4. And then for work to do for Thee, 
Which shall so sweet a service be 
That angels well might envy me, 
Christ Crucified, I come.
