Rescue The Perishing lyrics

Rescue The Perishing

Fanny J. Crosby

Verse 1
Rescue the perishing care for the dying
Snatch them in pity from sin and the grave
Weep over the erring one, lift up the fallen
Tell them of Jesus the mighty to save


Rescue the perishing care for the dying
Jesus is merciful Jesus will save

Verse 2
Though they are slighting him still he is waiting
Waiting the penitent child to receive
Plead with them earnestly plead with them gently
He will forgive if they only believe

Verse 3
Down in the human heart crushed by the tempter
Feelings lie buried that grace can restore
Touched by a loving heart wakened by kindness
Chords that were broken will vibrate once more


Verse 4
Rescue the perishing duty demands it
Strength for thy labor the lord will provide
Back to the narrow way patiently win them
Tell the poor wanderer a savior has died
