Rescue the perishing care for the dying Snatch




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.



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.

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



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.

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



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 wand’rer
a Savior has died.

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