TO THE RESCUE




See! a sail amid the fearful breakers
Yonder, waving signals of distress;
Haste! make ready at the saving station,
Man the life-boat, praying God to bless!

To the rescue, to the rescue!
Brother, seize the oar!
Launch the life-boat, launch the life-boat!
Pull away from shore!
Speed the life-boat, speed the life-boat!
Brave the wind and wave!
To the rescue, to the rescue!
Precious souls to save!


Higher, fiercer yet the tempest rages,
Can the life-boat live in such a sea?
Yes, for God who rules the storm shall guide it,
Till imperiled souls in safety be.

To the rescue, to the rescue!
Brother, seize the oar!
Launch the life-boat, launch the life-boat!
Pull away from shore!
Speed the life-boat, speed the life-boat!
Brave the wind and wave!
To the rescue, to the rescue!
Precious souls to save!


See the forms unto the old wreck clinging,
Now they beckon to the shore for aid;
Now their cry for help your ears is greeting!
Surely you would not the call evade?

To the rescue, to the rescue!
Brother, seize the oar!
Launch the life-boat, launch the life-boat!
Pull away from shore!
Speed the life-boat, speed the life-boat!
Brave the wind and wave!
To the rescue, to the rescue!
Precious souls to save!


Sin is rampant and its billows raging,
And these human wrecks are everywhere;
Brother, do not lose a single moment!
Heaven's message to them quickly bear.

To the rescue, to the rescue!
Brother, seize the oar!
Launch the life-boat, launch the life-boat!
Pull away from shore!
Speed the life-boat, speed the life-boat!
Brave the wind and wave!
To the rescue, to the rescue!
Precious souls to save!


Go and tell them Christ has died to win them,
Bid them cast on him their load of care;
Bid them hope, though 'neath the wave now sinking;
Tell them Christ can save them even there.

To the rescue, to the rescue!
Brother, seize the oar!
Launch the life-boat, launch the life-boat!
Pull away from shore!
Speed the life-boat, speed the life-boat!
Brave the wind and wave!
To the rescue, to the rescue!
Precious souls to save!
