GEC English Hymn

English Hymn 75

STANZA 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.

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

STANZA 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.

STANZA 3
Down in the human heart, crushed by the temper,
Feelings lie buried that grace can restore:
Touched by a loving hand, wakened by kindness,
Chords that were broken will vibrate once more.

STANZA 4
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.
