The Gaither Vocal Band (GVB) is an American southern gospel vocal group, named after its founder and leader Bill Gaither. Although the group started out recording contemporary Christian music in the 1980s, it became known for southern gospel after the popularity of the Gaither Homecoming videos.
The lineup of the band changes often, with artists leaving to work on solo careers, and new and old ones coming to replace them. Besides Bill Gaither, singers with the longest tenure in the band include Guy Penrod (1995–2008), Mark Lowry (1988–2002, 2009–13), Michael English (1985–94, 2009–13), David Phelps (1998–2005, 2009–17) and Wes Hampton (2005–present).
The band has released 29 albums (not including compilations), at least 19 of which have charted. The band has also released 10 DVDs, which feature many other Christian artists as well. The Gaither Vocal Band has been honored with two Grammys and 17 Dove Awards.
The version of the GVB that recorded this song consisted of Bill Gaither, Guy Penrod, Mark Lowry and Jonathan Pierce.
This song was the group’s first #1 song on the Singing News chart, holding that spot for 4 months.

This song is a remake – tweaked just a bit – of that old hymn entitled, “Come, Ye Sinners”.
Bible Reference… Isaiah 1:18; Romans 3:23; 10:9,10; Revelation 22:17

Come ye sinners, lost and lonely; Jesus’ blood can make you free.
For He saved the worst among you, when He saved a wretch like me.

        And I know, yes, I know Jesus’ blood can make the vilest sinner clean.
        And I know, yes, I know Jesus’ blood can make the vilest sinner clean.

To the faint, He giveth power; through the mountains makes a away;
findeth water in the desert; turns the night to golden day. (CHORUS)

In temptation, He is near thee; holds the powers of Hell at bay.
Guides you to the path of safety; gives you grace for every day. (CHORUS)
