Representative Text

1 Salvation, shout the joyful sound,
And let it fly the earth around,
The tidings spread o’er land and sea,
Redemption purchased, full and free.

Sound aloud the joyful story,
Sing the Savior’s deeds and glory,
Bear to every land and nation
Tidings of a free salvation.

2 For sinners helpless, lost and done,
God freely gave his only Son;
There souls to ransom, Jesus died,
On Calvary was crucified. [Refrain]

3 Behold his precious, crimson blood,
A cleansing and a healing flood;
Oh, come and wash thy sins away,
His yoke assume, his will obey. [Refrain]

4 On Christ with all thy heart believe,
Eternal life shalt thou receive;
Thy many sins shall be forgiv’n,
And thou shalt be an heir of heav’n. [Refrain]
