We have heard the joyful sound: Jesus saves! Jesus saves!

Bear the news to every land, climb the mountains, cross the waves;

         G              C        G     D            G
Onward! ’tis our Lord’s command; Jesus saves! Jesus saves!

Tell to sinners far and wide: Jesus saves! Jesus saves!

           C                         G             D   D7
Sing, you islands of the sea; echo back, you ocean caves;

         G              C        G     D            G
Earth shall keep her jubilee: Jesus saves! Jesus saves!

Sing above the battle strife: Jesus saves! Jesus saves!

           G                         D            G
By His death and endless life Jesus saves! Jesus saves!

           C                                  G               D   D7
Shout it brightly through the gloom, when the heart for mercy craves;

         G              C        G     D            G
Sing in triumph o’er the tomb: Jesus saves! Jesus saves!

G                                                D
Give the winds a mighty voice: Jesus saves! Jesus saves!

           G                         D            G
Let the nations now rejoice: Jesus saves! Jesus saves!

           C                           G                 D   D7
Shout salvation full and free; highest hills and deepest caves;

         G            C          G     D        G
This our song of victory: Jesus saves! Jesus saves!
