Rescue the Perishing
Words by Fanny J. Crosby

Jude 1:23
"And others save with fear, pulling them out of the fire;
hating even the garment spotted by the flesh."

          Rescue the perishing, Care for the dying,
          Snatch them in pity from sin and the grave;
          Weep o'er the erring ones, Lift up the fallen,
          Tell them of Jesus the mighty to save.

            Chorus
            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.

            Chorus
            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 are broken will vibrate once more.

            Chorus
            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.

            Chorus
            Rescue the perishing,
            Care for the dying;
            Jesus is merciful,
            Jesus will save.
