If you know where to get a good pho­to of Wil­der (head & shoul­ders, at least 200×300 pix­els),


Tell the sweet old story, shout the glad old song,
Let the ransomed swell it, as it rolls along,
Set the chorus ringing, jubilant and strong:
Jesus saves, sweetly saves.


He saves, Je­sus saves,
He saves, sweetly saves;
Let all nature join and sing,
To the glo­ry of our king:
Jesus saves, sweetly saves.

Wanderers in darkness, going far as­tray,
Wait for you to beckon to the up­ward way.
Hasten with the message, tell it while you may:
Jesus saves, sweetly saves.


Sing His love and mercy, sound it ev­er­more,
Till the world shall listen, wonder and adore,
Till the tuneful echoes reach the heav’n­ly shore:
Jesus saves, sweet­ly saves.
