The great Salvation. 1 SALVATION! O the joyful sound!

'Tis pleasure to our ears ;
A sov'reign balm for ev'ry wound,

A cordial for our fears.
2 Buried in sorrow and in sin,

At hell's dark door we lay;
But we arise by grace

To see a heav'nly day.
3 Salvation ! let the echo fly

The spacious earth around,
While all the armies of the sky

Conspire to raise the sound.


The great Salvation. 1 SALVATION! O the pow'r and love

That here triumphant reign,
To raise the soul from death and hell

To life and God again!
2 Salvation ! may it's sov'reign pow'r

Each stubborn soul subdue,
And tụne our tongues to loftier strains

Than ever mortals knew. 3 Salvation ! O Thou bleeding LAMB!

To Thee the praise belongs :
Salvation shall inspire our hearts,

And dwell upon our tongues.


Blow ye the trumpet, blow

The gladly solemn sound !
Let all the nations know,

To earth's remotest bound,
The year of jubilee is come;

Return, ye ransom'd sinners, home. 2 Exalt the LAMB of God,

The sin-atoning LAMB;
Redemption by His blood

Through all the lands proclaim :
The year of jubilee is come ;

Return, ye ransom'd sinners, home. 3 Ye slaves of sin and hell,

Your liberty receive ;
And safe in Jesus dwell,

And blest in Jesus live: !
The year of jubilee is come;

Return, ye ransom'd sinners, home. 4 The Gospel-trumpet hear,

The news of pard’ning grace :
Ye happy souls, draw near,

your SAVIOUR's face:

year of jubilee is come;
Return, ye ransom'd sinners, home.
JESUS our great High Priest

Has full atonement made :
Ye weary spirits, rest;

Ye mournful souls, be glad !
The year of jubilee is come;
Return, ye ransom'd sinners, home.


Praise for Redemption.

i Now.begin the heav'nly theme,

Sing aloud the Saviour's Name:
Ye, who Jesu's kindness prove,

Triumph in-Redeeming Love.
2 Ye, who see the FATHER's grace

Beaming in IMMANUEL's face,
As to Canaan on ye move,
Praise and bless-Redeeming Love.

3 Mourning souls, dry up your tears,

Banish all your guilty fears ;
See your guilt and sin remove,
Cancell'd by-Redeeming Love.

4. Ye, alas ! who long have been

Willing slaves of death and sin,
Now from bliss no longer rove,
Stop and taste-Redeeming Love.

5 Welcome, all by sin opprest,

Welcome to His sacred rest;
Come, and all the sweetness prove
Of our Lord's-Redeeming Love,

6 Hither all your music bring,

Strike aloud the cheerful string;
Come, and join the hosts above,
Shouting loud-Redeeming Love.

1 PLUNG'D in a gulf of dark despair

We wretched sinners lay,
Without one cheerful beam of hope,

Or spark of glimm'ring day.

2 With pitying eyes the Prince of Peace

Beheld our helpless grief;
He saw, and (O amazing love !)

He ran to our relief.

3 Down from the shining seats above

With joyful haste He Aled,
Entered the grave in mortal flesh,

And dwelt among the dead.

4. He spoild the pow'rs of darkness thus,

And brake our iron chains :
JESUS has freed our captive souls

From everlasting pains.

5 O for this love let rocks and hills

Their lasting silence break,
And all harmonious human tongues
The SAVIOUR's praises speak !

6 Yes, we will praise Thee, dearest LORD;

Our souls are all on flame:
Hosanna round the spacious earth

To Thine adored Name.


Praise for the Fountain opened.

1 THERE is a fountain filld with blood

Drawn from IMMANUEL's veins;
And sinners, plung'd beneath that flood,

Lose all their guilty stains. 2 Dear dying LAMB, Thy precious blood

Shall never lose it's pow'r,
Till all the ransom'd church of God

Be say'd to sin no more.

3 E’er since, by faith, I saw the stream

Thy flowing wounds supply, Redeeming love has been my theme,

And shall be till I die.

4 Then in a nobler, sweeter song

I'll sing Thy pow'r to save, When this poor lisping stamm'ring tongue

Lies silent in the grave.

5 LORD, I believe Thou hast prepar'd

(Unworthy though I be) For me a blood-bought free reward,

A golden harp for me!

6. 'Tis strung, and tun'd, for endless years,

And form'd by pow'r divine,
To sound in God the FATHER's ears

No other Name but Thine.
