Music Monday – O Come To The Altar

Happy Monday !!!

Last night, I had the opportunity to listen to one of the best messages that I have heard in a long time. I mean it was a rejuvenating time in the presence of God yet again.

In a nutshell, my pastor preached on Exodus chapter 33. As always, the Israelites refused to obey the laws of God during their journey to the promised land and God plainly stated that He won’t accompany them to the promised land. God did promise to send an angel instead. Imagine, heading to the place God promised them without God Himself accompany them. However, the Israelites under the leadership of Moses mourned and sought the face of the Lord. They could not make the journey to the land flowing with milk and honey without the presence of God.

Last night, I was yet reminded to recognize that there is nothing irreplaceable about being in the presence of God.

The presence of God is for His Children and you can ask Jesus into your heart regardless of your past and who you are because God loves unconditionally with an everlasting kind of love.

O Come to The Altar by Elevation Worship is a song that talks about the presence of God in a simple yet captivating way. It is like a worship medley that brought me to my knees. I hope you enjoy it.

O Come to The Altar – Elevation Worship

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

O come to the altar

The Father’s arms are open wide

Forgiveness was bought with

The precious blood of Jesus Christ

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

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

O come to the altar

The Father’s arms are open wide

Forgiveness was bought with

The precious blood of Jesus Christ

O come to the altar

The Father’s arms are open wide

Forgiveness was bought with

The precious blood of Jesus Christ

Bear your cross as you wait for the crown

Tell the world of the treasure you found


The presence of God provides full joy, it is a place where obstacles are moved, and most importantly it is a place of honor for us.

I hope above all this week that we remain connected to God and stay in His presence

Have an amazing week ahead
