JESUS SAVES

We have heard the joyful sound:  Jesus saves!  Jesus saves!
Spread the tidings all around:  Jesus saves!  Jesus saves!
Bear the news to every land, climb the mountains, cross the waves;
Onward! ’tis our Lord’s command;  Jesus saves!  Jesus saves!

Waft it on the rolling tide:  Jesus saves!  Jesus saves!
Tell to sinners far and wide:  Jesus saves!  Jesus saves!
Sing, you islands of the sea;  echo back, you ocean caves;
Earth shall keep her jubilee:  Jesus saves!  Jesus saves!

Sing above the battle strife:  Jesus saves!  Jesus saves!
By His death and endless life:  Jesus saves!  Jesus saves!
Shout it brightly through the gloom,  when the heart for mercy craves;
Sing in triumph o’er the tomb:  Jesus saves!  Jesus saves!

Give the winds a mighty voice:  Jesus saves!  Jesus saves!
Let the nations now rejoice:  Jesus saves!  Jesus saves!
Shout salvation full and free;  highest hills and deepest caves;
This our song of victory:  Jesus saves!  Jesus saves!
