367 ~ Rescue the Perishing



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.


Refrain

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

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 wanderer a Savior has died.
