    Verse 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.

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

    Verse 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.

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

    Verse 3
    Rescue the perishing ? duty demands it;
    Strength for thy labour the Lord will provide;
    Back to the narrow way patiently win them;
    Tell the poor wanderer a Saviour has died.

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