Representative Text

1 Children, to the rescue!
The world is full of sin;
Come to the field of harvest
And thrust the sickle in;
Let no one linger idle,
Or urge his friend to stay,
There’s work enough for all
In God’s great field today.

Refrain:
Children, to the rescue!
And do whate’er you can;
For ’tis a glorious mission
To work for God and man.

2 Children, to the rescue!
The world is full of woe;
Put smiles for tears, I pray you,
In some heart as you go;
Fear not to do a kind act,
To any by the way,
But work to hasten on
The great millennial day. [Refrain]

3 Children, to the rescue!
The world is full of doubt;
The lamp of faith hold higher,
And send its rays about;
Fail not to shed a glimmer
On some benighted heart,
And point him to the home
God’s love has set apart. [Refrain]
