Full Text

1. Tell the sweet old story, shout the glad old song,
Let the ransomed swell it, as it rolls along,
Set the chorus ringing, jubilant and strong:
Jesus saves, sweetly saves.

He saves, Jesus saves,
He saves, sweetly saves;
Let all nature join and sing,
To the glory of our king:
Jesus saves, sweetly saves.

2. Wanderers in darkness, going far astray,
Wait for you to beckon to the upward way.
Hasten with the message, tell it while you may:
Jesus saves, sweetly saves. [Refrain]

3. Sing His love and mercy, sound it evermore,
Till the world shall listen, wonder and adore,
Till the tuneful echoes reach the heav’nly shore:
Jesus saves, sweetly saves. [Refrain]
