1. Rescue the perishing,
      Care for the dying,
    Snatch them in pity from sin and the grave;
      Weep o’er the erring one,
      Lift up the fallen,
    Tell them of Jesus the mighty to save.
    • Rescue the perishing,
        Care for the dying;
      Jesus is merciful,
          Jesus will save.
  2. Though they are slighting Him,
      Still He is waiting,
    Waiting the penitent child to receive;
      Plead with them earnestly,
      Plead with them gently;
    He will forgive if they only believe.
  3. Down in the human heart,
      Crushed by the tempter,
    Feelings lie buried that grace can restore;
      Touched by a loving heart,
      Wakened by kindness,
    Chords that are broken will vibrate once more.
  4. Rescue the perishing,
      Duty demands it;
    Strength for thy labor the Lord will provide;
      Back to the narrow way,
      Patiently win them;
    Tell the poor wand’rer a Savior has died.
