Recommended Worship Songs for YOU ARE...TURNED:
Upon hearing the Gospel and believing in Christ, God has called us to turn away from the darkness of sin, self-righteousness, and worldliness and to turn to the one, true light, Jesus Christ, seeking to please Him with our lives. As the old hymn, Come Ye Sinners, states, we show true belief and true repentance when we turn from our sin to Jesus to receive His boundless grace. Jason Lavik's modern rendition of the hymn, Turn Your Eyes, is a beautiful encouragement to do the same.
