Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

This is the glorious gospel word

Representative Text

1 This is the glorious Gospel word—
Our God his heavens doth bow,
And cry to each believing heart,
Jesus saves thee now!

Jesus saves thee now,
Jesus saves thee now,
Jesus saves thee, yes, he saves thee,
Jesus saves thee now!

2 God speaks who cannot lie; why then
One doubt should I allow?
I doubt him not, but take his word—
Jesus saves me now!

3 I trust not self 'twould throw me back
Into Despond's deep slough;
From self I look to Christ, and find
Jesus saves me now!

4 Temptations hard upon me press,
No strength is mine, I know;
Yet more than conqueror am I,
Jesus saves me now!

5 Whate'er my future may require,
His grace will sure allow;
I live a moment at a time,
Jesus saves me now!

6 Why doubt him? he who died now lives;
The crown is on his brow;
The Son of Man hath power on earth,
Jesus saves me now!

7 And when within the pearly gates,
I at his feet shall bow,
The heaven of heaven itself will be—
Jesus saves me now!
