1. Rescue the perishing, care for the dying,
    snatch them in pity from sin and the grave;
    weep o’er 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.

  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.
  3. 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.
