Representative Text

1 Are you wrecked upon life's ocean?
Loud the waves about you roar,
Still there's hope, you need not perish,
You may reach the heav'ly shore,

Take the lifeboat, take the lifeboat,
See, the Saviour holding out a helping hand;
Wait no longer, take the lifeboat,
Start today for heaven's bright and happy land.

2 Linger not for earthly treasures,
Yonder lies the land of gold,
Friends and loved ones there are waiting,
There are joys for you untold. [Chorus]

3 Precious souls, like you, have lingered,
"Time enough" they gaily said;
Ere the morrow they had perished,
They had numbered with the dead. [Chorus]

4 Take the lifeboat, you are sinking,
Do not wait a moment more,
This may be your final offer,
Hasten now for yonder shore. [Chorus]
