1 Out upon an angry ocean,
Without helm or oar,
Millions in the wild commotion,
Sink to rise no more.
Throw out the life-line! Throw out the life-line!
Night is swiftly coming; Behold the setting sun!
Throw out the life-line! throw out the life-line!
Jesus is the life-line; You may save one.
2 On a flow'ry gospel meadow,
Thousands dwell at ease,
Caring not that Death's dark shadow
Haunts the stormy seas. [Chorus]
3 How can we who once were rescued
At so great a cost,
Cast adrift the only Life-Line,
Laughing at the lost! [Chorus]
4 Brothers, hear your brothers calling,
"Throw the line this way;"
Sisters, see your sisters sinking,
With no arm to stay. [Chorus]
