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…
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.
