Hymn 71 C.M. 1. Salvation! O, the joyful sound! 'Tis pleasure to our ears; A sov'reign balm for ev'ry 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 heav'nly day. 3. Salvation! let the echo fly The spacious earth around, While all the armies of the sky Conspire to raise the sound. 4. O happy period! glorious day, When heaven and earth shall raise, With all their powers, the raptured lay, To celebrate thy praise!
