Throw out the Lifeline
- 57 Views
Throw out the life line across the dark wave; There is a brother whom someone should save; Somebody's brother! O who then will dare To throw out the life line, his peril to share? Throw out the life line! Throw out the life line! Someone is drifting away; Throw out the life line! Throw out the life line! Someone is sinking today. Throw out the life line with hand quick and strong: Why do you tarry, why linger so long? See! he is sinking; oh, hasten today And out with the life boat! away, then away! Throw out the life line to danger fraught men, Sinking in anguish where you've never been; Winds of temptation and billows of woe Will soon hurl them out where the dark waters flow. Soon will the season of rescue be o'er, Soon will they drift to eternity's shore; Haste, then, my brother, no time for delay, But throw out the life line and save them today. This is the life line, oh, tempest tossed men; Baffled by waves of temptation and sin; Wild winds of passion, your strength cannot brave, But Jesus is mighty, and Jesus can save. Jesus is able! To you who are driv'n, Farther and farther from God and from Heav'n; Helpless and hopeless, o'erwhelmed by the wave; We throw out the life line, 'tis 'Jesus can save.' This is the life line, oh, grasp it today! See, you are recklessly drifting away; Voices in warning, shout over the wave, O grasp the strong life line, for Jesus can save.
