Jesus Saves!

The second half of Verse 3 is my favorite part of this hymn. Through the mercy and sacrifice of Christ, we need not fear death. It is only the beginning of our eternal life!

Verse 1:
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 steeps and cross the waves,
Onward! ’tis our Lord’s command;
Jesus saves! Jesus saves!

Verse 2:
Waft it on the rolling tide;
Jesus saves! Jesus saves!
Tell to sinners far and wide:
Jesus saves! Jesus saves!
Sing, ye islands of the sea;
Echo back, ye ocean waves;
Earth shall keep her jubilee:
Jesus saves! Jesus saves!

Verse 3:
Sing above the battle strife;
Jesus saves! Jesus saves!
By His death and endless life,
Jesus saves! Jesus saves!
Sing it softly thro’ the gloom
When the heart for mercy craves;
Sing in triumph o’er the tomb,
Jesus saves! Jesus saves!

Verse 4:
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!
