John 12:47
"And if any man hear my words, and believe not, I judge him not:
for I came not to judge the world, but to save the world."

          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 Lords 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, you islands of the sea;
          Echo back, ye ocean caves;
          Earth shall keep her jubilee:
          Jesus saves!  Jesus saves!

          Sing above the battle strife:
          Jesus saves!  Jesus saves!
          By His death and endless life,
          Jesus saves!  Jesus saves!
          Shout it softly thro' 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!
