Salvation.
Salvation is the song that was to be sung by the redeemed in that day. "Behold now is the day." Our salvation has come. "Glory to God in the highest, and on earth, peace, good will toward men."

The Gospel of John
As we turn to the fourth Gospel we come to entirely different ground from that which we have traversed in the other three.
