Throw Out the Life-Line  Misc. Gospel

[G]Throw out the life-line [D]across the dark [G]wave
There is a brother whom [A7]someone should [D]save
[G]Somebody's brother! oh, [D]who then will [G]dare
To throw out the life-line, his p[C]eril [D7]to s[G]hare

[G]Throw out the life-line

Throw out the life-line
[D7]Someone is drifting [G]away
[G]Throw out the life-line

Throw out the life-line
[C]Someone is s[D7]inking to[G]day

Throw out the life-line with hand quick and strong
Why do ye 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 over
Soon will they drift to eterntity's shore
Haste then, my brother, no time for delay
But throw out the life-line and save them today
