Representative Text

1 On sin's barren, rocky coast,
Life-barks perish o'er and o'er,
Precious souls are often lost,
Brother, look along the shore.

Look along the shore, my brother,
Look along the shore;
Quickly go, and you may rescue
Precious souls along the shore.

2 In the darkness of the night,
'Mid the angry breakers' roar,
Some poor soul may ask for light,
Brother, look along the shore. [Chorus]

3 Humble tasks are left undone
For the work that's honored more;
Seek some poor, neglected one,
Brother, look along the shore. [Chorus]

4 Lured by Satan's pow'r combined,
Lives are shipwrecked by the score;
Go, then quickly, and you'll find
Souls to save along the shore. [Chorus]
