Salvation is our motto

Representative Text

1 Salvation is our motto,
Salvation is our song,
And round the wide, wide world,
We’ll send the cry along.
Yes, Jesus is the sinners’ friend,
The Bible tells us so;
Their many sins he will forgive,
And wash them white as snow.

Steadily forward march! to Jesus we will bring
Sinners of every kind, and he will take them in.
Rich and poor as well, it does not matter who,
Bring them in with all their sin;
He’ll wash them white as snow.

2 Though all the world oppose us,
Yet we will never fear,
With Jesus as our leader,
His presence ever near;
A wall of fire around us,
We’ll never doubt his power,
But forward go the lost to save,
Yes, from this very hour.

3 Then forward to the conflict,
As through the world we go
Rejoicing in the blood
That washes white as snow.
Yes, we will fight for Jesus,
Though fierce the battle be;
O’er sin and Satan he will give
His soldiers victory.
