Throw Out The Life Line

Refrain  [1]  [2]  [3]  [4] 
SABBATH SCHOOL
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 across the dark wave, There is a brother whom someone should save; Somebody's brother! oh, who then will dare To throw out the life line, his peril to share?
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 lifeboat! 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 lime for delay,
But throw out the life line and save them today.

Throw out the life line across the dark wave,
There is a brother whom someone should save;
Somebody's brother! oh, who then will dare
To throw out the life line, his peril to share?

Refrain
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 lifeboat! 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 lime for delay,
But throw out the life line and save them today.
