Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

184. Salvation Is the Sweetest Thing

1 Salvation is the sweetest thing
That mortal ever found;
My soul can never cease to sing,
Such love and peace abound.

Refrain:
Jesus, our friend and Redeemer!
Jesus, our wonderful Light!
Saved by Thy grace we’re forever
Singing the blood that makes us white.

2 Salvation is omnipotence
Combined with love supreme,
Come down in pity so intense,
To rescue and redeem. [Refrain]

3 Salvation flows from Father’s heart,
A stream of holy love;
It covers me with glory bright,
And wings my soul above. [Refrain]

4 Salvation is a perfect plan;
It heals the saddest one
Who seeks the Father’s boundless grace
Through His beloved Son. [Refrain]

5 Salvation, oh, that word so great;
It thrills my heart with joy;
To me it is a rich estate
No foe can e’er destroy. [Refrain]
