Rescue the Perishing

Sorry to have missed the last two days. My daughter is in the hospital. She is beginning to recover, though.

Verse 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.

Verse 2:
Tho’ 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.

Verse 3:
Down in the human heart,
Crush’d by the tempter,
Feelings lie buried that grace can restore:
Touched by a loving heart,
Wakened by kindness,
Chords that were broken will vibrate once more.

Verse 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 Saviour has died.
