Rescue the Perishing

  1.  A winter storm is expected this weekend.  If the power fails my family and I will discover how well we do without electricity.   I do love living near the sea, though, and I'm thankful for the Coast Guard who watches over our shores.   It's almost a divine calling as Jesus called his disciples from the sea.   They are literally fishers of men, rescuing the perishing.   Tonight I'll leave you with a video of Coast Guard rescues..  

    Rescue The Perishing
    Fanny J. Crosby
      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.
      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 wand’rer a Savior has died.
