Salvation, O sing the glad story

Full Text

1 Salvation! O sing the glad story,
Salvation to sinners make known;
For Jesus, descending from glory,
A ransom became for His own.

Salvation, salvation.
Proclaim of the sin-cleansing blood;
Salvation, salvation.
Ring out the sweet message of God.

2 Salvation! O, sinners, receive it,
Accept the glad message of God;
Take now the full pardon He offers,
And trust in the sin-cleansing blood. [Chorus]

3 Now freely God offers salvation,
Full pardon and purity true;
Receive it with glad acclamation,
Let Christ be a Savior to you. [Chorus]

4 O trust in the mercy He offers,
And cleave to the path He hath trod;
And you shall rejoice in salvation,
Rejoice in your Savior and God. [Chorus]
