We've sung this at my church the past two Sundays and I absolutely adore it. I love the way it retells the Christmas story.

(It is the first 5 minutes of this video.)


Hear the heart of heaven beating,
Jesus saves, Jesus saves.
And the hush of mercy breathing,
Jesus saves, Jesus saves.
Hear the Host of angels sing
"Glory to the newborn King"
And the sounding joy repeating
Jesus saves.

See the humblest hearts adore him,
Jesus saves, Jesus saves.
And the wisest bow before him,
Jesus saves, Jesus saves.
See the sky alive with praise,
Melting darkness in its blaze.
There is light forevermore in
Jesus saves.

He will live, our sorrow sharing,
Jesus saves, Jesus saves.
He will die our burdens bearing,
Jesus saves, Jesus saves.
"It is done!" will shout the cross -
Christ has paid redemption's cost -
While the empty tomb's declaring,
"Jesus saves."

Freedom's calling, chains are falling,
Hope is dawning bright and true.
Day is breaking, night is quaking,
God is making all things new.
Jesus saves.

Oh, to grace how great a debtor,
Jesus saves, Jesus saves.
Are the saints who shout together,
Jesus saves, Jesus saves.
Rising up so vast and strong,
Lifting up salvation's song,
The redeemed will sing forever,
"Jesus saves."

I like the song, just not the melody! Actually, it really doesn't have one. :P

LOL! I disagree, although that rendition of the song is not as good as the original. I couldn't find a YouTube video of the original, and all the players I found of it online were not embed-able.

That is a really awesome song! I don't think I've ever heard it before now.
