Representative Text

1 Salvation! Shout salvation,
We who God’s gifts enjoy;
Let sanctified elation
Our grateful songs employ.
The sweet redemption story
To us is ever new;
To Jesus be the glory,
Our Saviour strong and true.

2 Salvation! Sing salvation;
Was e’er so grand a theme?
Sing on till every nation
Shall hear of Calvary’s stream.
Sing out the tidings glorious
That God so loved the world,
Till Christ shall be victorious
And Hell be backward hurled.

3 Salvation! Speak salvation
In every sinner’s ear;
It carries consolation,
It stanches sorrow’s tear.
The sad, the sick, the dying,
In Chri st are fully blest;
Yea, all on him relying
In him find perfect rest.

4 Salvation! Shout salvation
Till Jesus comes again
To claim each blood-bou ght nation
And o’er his Kingdom reign.
Soon we in realms of Glory
Shall join the ransomed throng,
And sing the deathless story,
Redemption’s endless song.
