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 divine

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..

To life and GOD again!

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

Than ever mortals knew. 3 Salvation ! 0 Thou bleeding LAMB!

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

And dwell upon our tongues.

Strike aloud the cheerful string;

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 fled, 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..... ...

i THERE is a fountain fill'd 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. ..

* 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.
