184. Salvation Is the Sweetest Thing

1 Salvation is the sweetest thing
That mortal ever found;
My soul can never cease to sing,
Such love and peace abound.

Refrain:
Jesus, our friend and Redeemer!
Jesus, our wonderful Light!
Saved by Thy grace we’re forever
Singing the blood that makes us white.

2 Salvation is omnipotence
Combined with love supreme,
Come down in pity so intense,
To rescue and redeem. [Refrain]

3 Salvation flows from Father’s heart,
A stream of holy love;
It covers me with glory bright,
And wings my soul above. [Refrain]

4 Salvation is a perfect plan;
It heals the saddest one
Who seeks the Father’s boundless grace
Through His beloved Son. [Refrain]

5 Salvation, oh, that word so great;
It thrills my heart with joy;
To me it is a rich estate
No foe can e’er destroy. [Refrain]
