Rescue the perishing, care for the dying


Rescue the perishing, care for the dying,
snatch them in pity from sin and the grave;
weep over 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, care for the dying,
Jesus is merciful, Jesus will save.


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.
Refrain:
Rescue the perishing, care for the dying,
Jesus is merciful, Jesus will save.


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.
Refrain:
Rescue the perishing, care for the dying,
Jesus is merciful, Jesus will save.
