“Rescue the perishing” – that never changes,
Souls still are dying in sin, guilt, and shame;
Swiftly time’s flying by, Jesus is coming,
We must be busy to preach His dear name.
Refrain: “Rescue the perishing”,
Tell them of Jesus;
He is their only hope,
Tell them today.
“Rescue the perishing” – still we’re commanded:
Souls now are dying while we sadly wait;
Wake, Christian, out of sleep, night’s quickly passing,
Go with the gospel before it’s too late.
“Rescue the perishing” – Hell is forever,
Souls that are lost will not ever escape;
Go with the Gospel now, Christ has been patient,
Pity the lost in his hopeless estate.
