Jesus Still Saves

Isaiah 59:1 Behold, the Lord’s hand is not shortened, that it cannot save; neither his ear heavy, that it cannot hear:

Jesus still saves. He still saves.
He still resurrects the broken.
Anytime his word is spoken,
hearts can hear.
He still saves. Jesus still saves.
Hear His voice of mercy pleading.
Understand His arms are reaching.
Jesus saves.

God’s hands are not bound by this world’s unbelief.
His ears are not deaf that He can’t hear.
His heart is ever beating with His love so full and free,
and His grace is still sufficient to save those who believe.

Jesus still saves. He still saves.
He still resurrects the broken.
Anytime his word is spoken
hearts can hear.
He still saves. Jesus still saves.
Hear His voice of mercy pleading.
Understand His arms are reaching.
Jesus saves.

Sent to preach good news to a people chained by sin,
Jesus came to set the captive free.
Beauty for our ashes,
Joy where sadness reigned.
Jesus gives so great salvation,
and makes us whole again.

Jesus still saves. He still saves.
He still resurrects the broken.
Anytime his word is spoken
hearts can hear.
He still saves. Jesus still saves.
Hear His voice of mercy pleading.
Understand His arms are reaching.
Jesus saves.

“We have heard the joyful sound
Jesus Saves, Jesus Saves.
Spread the tidings all around
Jesus Saves, Jesus Saves.”[1]

Isaiah 61:1-3 The Spirit of the Lord God is upon me; because the Lord hath anointed me to preach good tidings unto the meek; he hath sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound;

To proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord, and the day of vengeance of our God; to comfort all that mourn;

To appoint unto them that mourn in Zion, to give unto them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they might be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the Lord, that he might be glorified.

[1] The last four lines are an excerpt from the hymn “We Have Heard the Joyful Sound”, written by Priscilla J. Owens and published in 1898.
