Perishing Souls at Stake

Full Text

1 Perishing souls at stake today!
Says the banner of Christ unfurled;
Pleading in love for help to save
Blood-bought sinners all o’er the world.

Refrain:
Perishing souls at stake, my brother,
What is all this world beside?
Perishing souls at stake, my brother,
For whom the blessed Savior died;
Perishing souls, perishing souls,
Oh, who will help to save the lost?

2 Perishing souls at stake we see,
Yet the Savior has died for all;
Go and invite them earnestly,
Some will surely obey the call. [Refrain]

3 Perishing souls at stake today,
There’s a famine in all the land;
Many are dying for the bread
Freely given by Jesus’ hand. [Refrain]

4 Perishing souls at stake, go tell
What the Savior has done for you;
How He redeemed thy soul from hell,
And is able to save them, too. [Refrain]

5 Perishing souls at stake we know,
Oh, do pity the sinner’s fate!
Brother and sister, will you go,
Give them warning before too late. [Refrain]

6 Perishing souls at stake today,
Can you tarry for earthly dross?
Fly to the rescue, don’t delay,
Bring the needy to Jesus’ cross. [Refrain]
