Representative Text

1 The life-boat is launch’d on the wild, stormy sea,
To rescue the lost who are drifting away;
For Satan is striving their souls to obtain,
Yes, Jesus is calling, “I’ll save you today.”

Refrain:
Step in the life-boat, step in the life-boat,
Jesus invites you, no longer delay;
Step in the life-boat, step in the life-boat,
Jesus is calling, “I’ll save you today.”

2 The life-boat is launch’d, it is now at your side;
Christ’s hands are outstretch’d to afford you relief;
Accept the kind aid and be rescued from death;
Rejecting is choosing your soul’s endless grief. [Refrain]

3 The life-boat is launch’d, she is taking us home,
While thousands are drifting to endless despair;
O, brother, come with us, salvation is free;
The Saviour will pardon, submit to His care. [Refrain]
