Throw Out the Life-Line

G D G Throw out the life-line across the dark wave A7 D There is a brother whom someone should save G D G Somebody's brother! oh, who then will dare C D7 G To throw out the life-line, his peril to share Chorus: G Throw out the life-line Throw out the life-line D7 G Someone is drifting away G Throw out the life-line Throw out the life-line C D7 G Someone is sinking today Throw out the life-line with hand quick and strong Why do ye tarry, why linger so long See he is sinking; oh, hasten today And out with the lifeboat! Away then, away Chorus Throw out the life-line to danger-fraught men Sinking in anguish where you've never been Winds of temptation and billows of woe Will soon hurl them out where the dark waters flow Chorus Soon will the season of rescue be over Soon will they drift to eterntity's shore Haste then, my brother, no time for delay But throw out the life-line and save them today Chorus
