Representative Text

1 Many at the cross are kneeling,
Jesus, Jesus saves,
By his boundless love revealing,
Jesus, Jesus saves.

Hallelujah, light is beaming,
Hallelujah, blood is streaming,
Hallelujah, Jesus saves,
Hallelujah, Jesus saves.

2 All the lost and all the lonely,
Jesus, Jesus saves,
Oh, come now, believing only,
Jesus, Jesus saves. [Refrain]

3 Hearts are at this moment proving,
Jesus, Jesus saves,
Every sinful stain removing,
Jesus, Jesus saves. [Refrain]

4 Come with tears your sin confessing,
Jesus, Jesus saves,
Seek and find the choicest blessing,
Jesus, Jesus saves. [Refrain]

5 Hallelujah, saints are singing,
Jesus, Jesus saves,
Heaven with joyous song is ringing,
Jesus, Jesus saves. [Refrain]
