Representative Text

1 How great the salvation that saves in the hour
When doubt and temptation assail with great pow’r,
When tempests arise, and dark storms sweep the soul,
And billows of grief o’er the trembling heart roll!

Oh, this great, this great salvation,
Tell its pow’r to ev’ry nation,
Let it ring thro’ all creation,
Jesus saves,
Oh, great salvation!

2 How great the salvation that saves in gloom
Of valley and shadow, that light up the tomb
With glory immortal, and shouts o’er the grave
The triumph of Jesus, the mighty to save! [Refrain]

3 How great the salvation revealed in the day
The trumpet shall sound and the heav’ns roll away,
When Christ shall descend as a Conqu’ror and King,
when we shall be like Him, His praises to sing! [Refrain]
