131. Send a Cheer Across the Wave

1 They are pushing out the life-boat, throwing out the line;
Will you help a soul to save?
Let the blessed light of rescue o’er the billows shine,
Send a cheer across the wave.

Refrain:
Ring it out with voices loud and clear,
Ring it out, a word of hearty cheer;
If you cannot go a soul to save,
Send a cheer across the wave.

2 Think how Jesus, mighty Saviour, came to save the lost,
For his blood he freely gave;
Let his Spirit move within you toward the tempest-tossed,
Send a cheer across the wave. [Refrain]

3 By your sympathy unfailing you can strength bestow,
You can aid the toilers brave;
While your prayers arise to heaven, from a heart aglow,
Send a cheer across the wave. [Refrain]
