1 Jesus saves! Jesus saves!
Send the tidings forth
To the ends of earth;
Jesus saves! Jesus saves!
O proclaim his matchless worth!

Lift your voices,
Sing, ye people, sing;
Flood with joy the earth;
Hail him, hail him,
Christ the promised King!
Sound his praises forth;
Send the tidings over land and sea,
Let the joy-bells ring;
Haste, proclaim the year of jubilee,
Hail your Lord and King!

2 Tell the news! Joyful news!
Life to all he brings
On his radiant wings;
Praise his name, Jesus’ name;
Glory to the King of kings! [Chorus]

3 Speak his love, wondrous love,
Bless his name most high,
Lord of earth and sky;
Praises bring, to our King;
Sing, ye heav’ns, and, earth, reply! [Chorus]
