We have heard the joyful sound

We have heard the joyful sound:
  Jesus saves! Jesus saves!
Spread the tidings 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!
Waft it on the rolling tide,
  Jesus saves, Jesus saves;
Tell 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.
Sing above the battle's strife,
  Jesus saves, Jesus saves;
By His death and endless life,
  Jesus saves, Jesus saves;
Sing it softly thru the gloom,
When the heart for mercy craves,
Sing in triumph o'er the tomb,
  Jesus saves, Jesus saves.
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.

I was immersed in Psalm 89, came to verse 15, ”how blessed are the people who know the joyful sound! ” That phrase immediately took me to one of my childhood hymns, “We have heard the joyful sound, Jesus Saves, Jesus Saves! ” Then I saw all these brothers and sisters in Jesus all over the globe singing of how He saved them, and I joined them! Thank you Lord Jesus for saving me, and taking me to a hymn I hadn’t sung in 50 plus years.

Was feeling overwhelmed all day at school but when I arrived home I kept hearing this song. It reminds me about the purpose of me being on this earth.

To God be the Glory.
