Rescue the Perishing

  • Rescue the Perishing 142 R182:49

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. 

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. (Refrain) 


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.  (Refrain)
