Lyrics

Out in the break­ers are per­ish­ing souls,
Save one, save one;
Out where the cur­rent of sin mad­ly rolls,
Save one, save one.

Refrain

Pity the per­ish­ing, la­bor and pray;
Hasten to res­cue them, save one to­day;
Then in your heart will be Hea­ven be­gun,
Save one, save one.

Out in the dark­ness of sin’s aw­ful night,
Save one, save one;
Tell them of Je­sus, and lead to the light,
Save one, save one.

Refrain

Out on the moun­tain so sad­ly as­tray,
Save one, save one;
From the sweet home land so far, far away,
Save one, save one.

Refrain

Loved ones or stran­gers, whoe’er they may be,
Save one, save one;
Go in His Spi­rit who saves you and me,
Save one, save one.
