1 Salvation! O melodious sound
to wretched dying Men!
Salvation, that from God proceeds,
and leads to God again!
2 Rescu'd from Hell's eternal Gloom,
from Fiends and fires and Chains;
Rais'd to a paradise of Bliss,
where Love, with Glory reigns!

3 But O! may a degen'rate Soul,
sinful and weak as mine,
Presume to raise a trembling Eye
to Blessings so divine?
4 The Lustre of so bright a Scene
my feeble Heart o'erbears;
And Unbelief almost perverts
the promise into Tears.

5 My Saviour-God, no Voice but Thine
these dying Hopes can raise;
Speak thy Salvation to my soul,
and turn its Tears to Praise.
6 My Saviour-GOD this broken Voice
transported shall proclaim,
And call on all th' Angelic Harps
to sound so sweet a Name.
