SALVATION! O the joyful sound!

'T is pleasure to our ears:

A sovereign balm for every wound,

A cordial for our fears.

Buried in sorrow and in sin,

At death's dark door we lay;

But we arise by grace divine

To see a heavenly day.

Salvation! let the echo fly

The spacious earth around,

While all the armies of the sky

Conspire to raise the sound.

O happy period-glorious day,

When heaven and earth shall raise,

With all their powers the raptured lay

To celebrate thy praise.
