Recommended Worship Songs for YOU ARE... MARRED:
The catastrophic result of Adam and Eve's sin was the corruption of all mankind in a way that destroyed our relationship with God. The hymn, Hallelujah! What a Savior, says we are “ruined sinners” who are “guilty, vile, and helpless.” In the modern Sovereign Grace song, O Great God, man is described with a complete inability to see, hear or taste the goodness of God apart from His saving grace.
