Salvation.  Ps. 35. 9;  Isa. 52. 10;  Jonah 2. 9

I. Watts                                          C.M.

     1
Salvation! O the joyful sound!
’Tis pleasure to our ears,
A sovereign balm for every wound,
A cordial for our fears.

2
Buried in sorrow and in sin,
At hell’s dark door we lay;
But we arise by grace divine,
To see a heavenly day.

3
Salvation! let the echo fly
The spacious earth around;
While all the armies of the sky
Conspire to raise the sound.
