728. Jesus Saves!

1 We have heard the joyful sound: Jesus saves! Jesus saves!
Spread the tidings all around: Jesus saves! Jesus saves!
Bear the news to every land, climb the steeps and cross the waves;
Onward! ’tis our Lord’s command; Jesus saves! Jesus saves!

2 Waft it on the rolling tide: Jesus saves! Jesus saves!
Tell to sinners far and wide: Jesus saves! Jesus saves!
Sing, ye islands of the sea; echo back, ye ocean caves;
earth shall keep her jubilee: Jesus saves! Jesus saves!

3 Sing above the battle strife: Jesus saves! Jesus saves!
By His death and endless life, Jesus saves! Jesus saves!
Sing it softly through the gloom, when the heart for mercy craves;
sing in triumph o’er the tomb: Jesus saves! Jesus saves!

4 Give the winds a mighty voice: Jesus saves! Jesus saves!
Let the nations now rejoice--Jesus saves! Jesus saves!
Shout salvation full and free; highest hills and deepest caves;
this our song of victory: Jesus saves! Jesus saves!
