1. Out on the perilous sea of life,
Some one is drifting away tonight;
Out in the darkness, where the storm rages wild,
Throw out the life-line to some mother’s child.

Refrain
Hold it fast while the waves roll high,
Jesus will rescue you by and by.
Saved at last, what a joy to know,
Take hold of the life-line, and never let go.

2. Farther and farther they drift each day,
Resting their oars on the ocean’s white spray,
Dreaming of pleasure without alloy.
Throw out the life-line to some mother’s boy. [Refrain]

3. Quick to the rescue while yet you may,
Succor the perishing, save one today;
Tell them of Jesus who came to save.
He that believeth salvation may have. [Refrain]

4. Now I surrender my all to Him,
Jesus has rescued and saved me from sin;
Beautiful visions burst on my sight,
Glory to Jesus, I’m saved tonight.

Refrain
Holding fast while the waves roll high,
Jesus has rescued me, this my cry.
Saved I am, what a joy to know;
I’m holding the life-line, I’ll never let go.
