Lyrics

O sing the song of salvation,
Proclaim to every nation,
That Jesus is waiting,
Is willing and ready,
To save their souls.

Refrain

He saved me, made me free;
What He has done for me, sinner,
He’ll do for you, none but He!
He saved me, soon I’ll be
Singing in glory the beautiful story,
That He saved me!

He’s promised ever to lead me,
With heav’nly manna to feed me,
His counsel directs me,
His presence consoles me,
The whole day long.

Refrain

I’ll never cease to adore Him,
For when my spirit before Him
At judgment is standing,
If He is my counsel
Then all is well.
