Representative Text

1 Jesus saved others; burden’d, oppress’d,
Throng’d they around Him finding sweet rest;
Numberless sinners seeking His face,
Now are rejoicing, praising His grace.

Jesus saved others,
Mercy is free!
Sing Hallelujah!
Jesus saves me!

2 Jesus saved others; life they obtained,
Pardon and cleansing, freely they gained;
Mighty salvation!—always the same,
None ever perish pleading His name. [Refrain]

3 Jesus saved others; trusting Him here,
Multitudes yonder spotless appear;
Give Him the glory, joyfully say:—
He who saved others, saved me today. [Refrain]
