Jesus Saves

Jesus Saves
By Jeremy Camp

Hope is here
Shout the news to everyone
It’s a new day, peace has come
Jesus saves
Mercy triumphs at the cross
Love has come to rescue us
Jesus saves

Hope is here
What a joyful noise we’ll make
As we join with heaven’s song…

CHORUS:
To let all the world know that Jesus saves
Raise a shout
To let all the world know that Jesus saves

Free at last
Every debt has been repaid
Broken hearts can be remade
Jesus saves
See above the storms of life
See it through the darkest nights
Jesus saves

Free at last
What a joyful noise we’ll make
And we join in heaven’s song…

CHORUS

He’ll save, he’ll heal, restore, reveal
The Father’s heart to us
He rose to raise us from the grave
His spirit lives in us

Why is it so important that Jesus saves? Many people believe in Jesus as a prophet, or historical figure. Does it matter if He was fully divine and fully human at the same time? This has been a debate through the centuries, and causes division even today. But if Jesus didn’t come to save, if he didn’t have the power to save us from the punishment of sin (death), then in what do we put our faith? Do we hope to get to heaven based on our own merit, trying to live our lives to the very best of our ability, and just praying it’s enough? Many people around the world are desperate for some assurance of salvation, but in their own religions or paths they find none. This is the power of Jesus Christ and the message we can offer as Christians. Our job is to walk across the street or across the office, to fly across the ocean, to tell the world that Jesus saves.

  1. I really, really like that song, dear sister. 🙂 Whenever I'm driving to and fro and it comes on the radio, I turn it up loud and sing along.
