Rescue the Perishing

C F C Rescue the perishing, care for the dying, G7 C D7 G7 Snatch them in pity from sin and the grave; C F C Weep o'er the erring one, lift up the fallen, G7 C F G7 C Tell them of Jesus, the mighty to save. Chorus: G7 C G7 C Rescue the perishing, care for the dying, F C G7 C 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. Chorus 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 were broken will vibrate once more. Chorus 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. Chorus
