We Have Heard a Joyful Sound

  • 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!

 

  • 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.

 

  • Sing above the battle’s strife,
    Jesus saves, Jesus saves;
    By His death and endless life,
    Jesus saves, Jesus saves;
    Sing it softly thru the gloom,
    When the heart for mercy craves,
    Sing in triumph o’er the tomb,
    Jesus saves, Jesus saves.

 

  • 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.
