Representative Text

1 Help to save somebody, Christian, arise!
Hasten to labor, for time swiftly flies;
Seek the poor wanderers lost in the night,
Point them to Jesus, the Life and the Light.

Refrain:
Help, help, Christian, arise!
Help, help, do not delay!
Help to save somebody lost in the night,
Jesus commands you, obey!

2 Think of your friends—are there any astray?
Can you not speak of your Savior today?
Tenderly, faithfully, tell of His love;
Tell of the mansions preparing above. [Refrain]

3 Be as the Master was, patient and kind;
Go in His precious name, seek till you find.
Out in the highways, His people must go;
May His own spirit our hearts overflow. [Refrain]
