​Throw Out The Life Line

This song is by Sister Rosetta Tharpe and appears on the album Blessed Assurance (1951).

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! Throw out the life line!
Someone is drifting away
Throw out the life line! Throw out the life line!
Someone is sinking today

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

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
