This song calls all of us to surrender our own lives to God so that we can be living sacrifices. God constantly says to us His invitation through the words of Jesus: “Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls” (Matthew 11:28-29).

O come to the altar lyrics and chords Elevation Worship song

We can hear many times in this song lyrics that remind us that “Jesus is calling.” All we need to do is to notice the signs, to hear His calling and to respond to it. What could be our response? Following Him and coming to the altar where God is waiting for us and “to consecrate” ourselves to God. It is the only way for us to find forgiveness for our sins and devote all our lives to God. We are living sacrifices because Christ by his death on the cross has brought us from spiritual death to life. Our life here isn’t random; we live here with the purpose – to reach God’s Kingdom.

This song encourages us never lose hope in any difficult situation. The only thing we should do in a hopeless situation is to bring our sorrows and follow Jesus. He is the only way to forgiveness of sins and attainment of peace in your hearts. As Jesus said in Matthew 14:6: “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me”. No other ways, no other paths, no other possibilities. Just answer calling and come just as you are with the open heart.

O Come to the Altar Lyrics and Chords

Are you hurting and broken within?
Overwhelmed by the weight of your sin?
Jesus is calling
Have you come to the end of yourself
Do you thirst for a drink from the well?
Jesus is calling

O come to the altar
The Father’s arms are open wide
Forgiveness was bought with
The precious blood of Jesus Christ

Leave behind your regrets and mistakes
Come today there’s no reason to wait
Jesus is calling
Bring your sorrows and trade them for joy
From the ashes a new life is born
Jesus is calling

O come to the altar
The Father’s arms are open wide
Forgiveness was bought with
The precious blood of Jesus Christ (x2)

Oh what a savior
Isn’t He wonderful?
Sing hallelujah, Christ is risen
Bow down before Him
For He is Lord of all
Sing Hallelujah, Christ is risen (x2)

O come to the altar
The Father’s arms are open wide
Forgiveness was bought with
The precious blood of Jesus Christ (x2)

Bear your cross as you wait for the crown
Tell the world of the treasure you found
