Hymnary Friends,

We don't often ask for money.

559. Rescue the Perishing

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.

2. Tho' they are slighing 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.

Rescue the perishing,
Care for the dying,
Jesus is merciful,
Jesus will save.

3. Down in the human heart,
Crushed by the tempter,
Fellings lie buried that grace can restore;
Touched by a loving heart,
Wakened by kindness,
Chords that are broken will vibrate once more.

Rescue the perishing,
Care for the dying,
Jesus is merciful,
Jesus will save.

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 Savior has died.

Rescue the perishing,
Care for the dying,
Jesus is merciful,
Jesus will save.
