He saves with power divine

Full Text

1 Hear again the blessed, blessed story
Of the Saviour’s wondrous pow’r to save;
How for us he left his home in glory,
Conquered sin, death and the grave.

Jesus saves, Jesus saves,
Sing aloud the story;
Jesus saves, Jesus saves,
Give him all the praise and glory;
Jesus saves, Jesus saves,
Saves this soul of mine;
Jesus saves, Jesus saves,
He saves with pow’r divine.

2 Sorrow, toil, and pain were in his pathway
All along his journey here below,
Leading him at last to Calv’ry’s mountain,
All to save our souls from woe. [Refrain]

3 May we now accept this blessed Saviour
Who has done so much for me and you;
Give to him our hearts, and tell the story,
Others then may find him too. [Refrain]
