Representative Text

1 “I bring you tidings of great joy,”
For Jesus comes to save His own;
Yes, Jesus comes, though Lord of all,
For you He leaves His heav’nly home.

Refrain:
Rejoice, His Name is Jesus, for He saves,
Rejoice, His Name is Jesus, for He saves,
For He saves, For He saves,
For He saves His people from their sins,
For He saves, For He saves,
For He saves His people from their sins.

2 Just at the door, with lifted hand,
He stands and knocks—would enter in;
Who welcomes Christ, with heart and soul,
Will prove that Jesus saves from sin. [Refrain]

3 No other friend can bless as He,
You’ve greeted others—welcome Him;
What foes you’ve had—you thought them friends,
Jesus, true Friend, will save from sin. [Refrain]

4 Besetting sins to Christ will yield,
Through Him all self will find a grave;
And all this deadly strife will cease,
As Jesus proves his power to save. [Refrain]

5 And Purity is His free gift,
Thus saving to the uttermost;
And by the Holy Spirit’s Power,
He gives to us our Pentecost. [Refrain]
