Rescue The Perishing
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 are 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 the Savior has died.
~Fanny J. Crosby
If you are one of those who are slighting Him today or one of those whose heart has been crushed by the tempter, Jesus is still waiting. He can waken the feelings of your heart and give you new hope and new life. For you the Savior has died. He will forgive if you only believe.
"For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life."
"6Seek ye the LORD while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near: 7Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the LORD, and he will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon." (Isaiah 55:6,7)
