Throw out the lifeline Across the dark




Throw out the life line
across the dark wave;
There is a brother
whom someone should save;
Somebody’s brother!
O who then will dare
To throw out the life line,
his peril to share?

Throw out the life line!
Throw out the life line!
Someone is drifting away;
Throw out the life line!
Throw out the life line!
Someone is sinking today.



Throw out the life line
with hand quick and strong:
Why do you tarry,
why linger so long?
See! he is sinking;
oh, hasten today
And out with the life boat!
away, then away!

Throw out the life line!
Throw out the life line!
Someone is drifting away;
Throw out the life line!
Throw out the life line!
Someone is sinking today.



Throw out the life line
to danger fraught men,
Sinking in anguish
where you’ve never been;
Winds of temptation
and billows of woe
Will soon hurl them
out where the dark waters flow.

Throw out the life line!
Throw out the life line!
Someone is drifting away;
Throw out the life line!
Throw out the life line!
Someone is sinking today.



Soon will the season
of rescue be o’er,
Soon will they drift to eternity’s shore;
Haste, then, my brother,
no time for delay,
But throw out the life line
and save them today.

Throw out the life line!
Throw out the life line!
Someone is drifting away;
Throw out the life line!
Throw out the life line!
Someone is sinking today.



This is the life line, oh,
tempest tossed men;
Baffled by waves
of temptation and sin;
Wild winds of passion,
your strength cannot brave,
But Jesus is mighty,
and Jesus can save.

Throw out the life line!
Throw out the life line!
Someone is drifting away;
Throw out the life line!
Throw out the life line!
Someone is sinking today.



Jesus is able! To you who are driv’n,
Farther and farther from
God and from Heav’n;
Helpless and hopeless,
o’erwhelmed by the wave;
We throw out the life line,
’tis “Jesus can save.”

Throw out the life line!
Throw out the life line!
Someone is drifting away;
Throw out the life line!
Throw out the life line!
Someone is sinking today.



This is the life line,
oh, grasp it today!
See, you are recklessly drifting away;
Voices in warning,
shout over the wave,
O grasp the strong life line,
for Jesus can save.

Throw out the life line!
Throw out the life line!
Someone is drifting away;
Throw out the life line!
Throw out the life line!
Someone is sinking today.
