Rescue the Perishing

The United Methodist Hymnal Number 591
Text: Fanny J. Crosby, 1820-1915
Music: William H. Doane, 1832-1915
Tune: RESCUE, Meter: 6 5 10 D

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.	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. 

4.	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.
