Joyful news

Representative Text

1 Jesus brought me to the mountain,
Where salvation echoes roll;
Living by the crystal fountain,
Which has made me fully whole.

Sound the tidings of salvation,
Let its echoes onward roll;
Praise the Lord, ye ransomed nation,
For He heals the wounded soul.
Hear the echoes roll,
’Tis the blood of Jesus
That has sanctified my soul.

2 Jesus brought me back to Eden,
Where the sun doth ever shine;
Precious, sweet, and pure redemption,
Hallelujah! It is mine. [Refrain]

3 Oh, the bliss of full salvation
Wakes the chords of melody,
In our hearts a sweet vibration
With all heaven’s minstrelsy. [Refrain]

4 Brother, when this life is ended,
On our pinions we shall rise,
Where the saints cannot be numbered,
In that world beyond the skies. [Refrain]

5 We shall reach the fields elysian,
When this mortal life is o’er;
Have a bright, immortal vision
On that ever-peaceful shore. [Refrain]
