We Have Heard a Joyful Sound 201
(JESUS SAVES. 7, 6, 7, 6, 7, 7, 7, 6)
Priscilla J. Owens William J. Kirkpatrick
 
1.
We have heard a joyful sound: Jesus saves! Jesus saves!

Tell the message 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!

2.
Waft it on the rolling tide: Jesus saves! Jesus saves!

Say 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 !

3.
Sing above the toil and strife: Jesus saves! Jesus saves!

By his death and endless life Jesus saves! Jesus saves!
Sing it softly through the gloom, When the heart for mercy craves;
Sing in triumph o'er the tomb,-- Jesus saves! Jesus saves!

4.
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! Amen.
