736. 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.

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

2 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)

3 Down in the human heart, crushed by the tempter,
feelings lie buried that grace can restore;
touched by a loving heart, wakened by kindness,
cords that are broken will vibrate once more. (Refrain)

4 Rescue the perishing, duty demands it;
strength for your labor the Lord will provide;
back to the narrow way patiently win them,
tell the poor wanderer a Savior has died. (Refrain)
