“Salvation! O my soul, rejoice!”

A hymn written by William Gadsby


Salvation! O my soul, rejoice!
        Salvation is of God;
He speaks, and that almighty voice
        Proclaims His grace abroad.


The Father loved us ere we fell,
        And will for ever love;
Nor shall the powers of earth or hell
        His love from Zion move.


'Twas love that moved Him to ordain
        A Surety, just and good,
And on His heart inscribed the name
        Of all for whom He stood.


Nor is the Surety short of love;
        He loves beyond degree;
No less than love Divine could move
        The Lord to die for me.


And oh, what love the Spirit shows!
        When Jesus He reveals
To men oppressed with sin and woes,
        He all their sorrows heals.


The Three-in-One and One-in-Three,
        In love for ever rest;
And Zion shall in glory be,
        And with His love be blessed.
