Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

849. Perishing Souls at Stake

1 Perishing souls at stake today!
Says the banner of Christ unfurled;
Pleading in love for help to save
Blood-bought sinners all o’er the world.

Refrain:
Perishing souls at stake, my brother,
What is all this world beside?
Perishing souls at stake, my brother,
For whom the blessed Savior died;
Perishing souls, perishing souls,
Oh, who will help to save the lost?

2 Perishing souls at stake we see,
Yet the Savior has died for all;
Go and invite them earnestly,
Some will surely obey the call. [Refrain]

3 Perishing souls at stake today,
There’s a famine in all the land;
Many are dying for the bread
Freely given by Jesus’ hand. [Refrain]

4 Perishing souls at stake, go tell
What the Savior has done for you;
How He redeemed thy soul from hell,
And is able to save them, too. [Refrain]

5 Perishing souls at stake we know,
Oh, do pity the sinner’s fate!
Brother and sister, will you go,
Give them warning before too late. [Refrain]

6 Perishing souls at stake today,
Can you tarry for earthly dross?
Fly to the rescue, don’t delay,
Bring the needy to Jesus’ cross. [Refrain]
