Rescue the Perishing
by Frances J. Coombs
Mr. Annis’s history class had a surprise performance from a familiar quartet. Mr. Annis, Mr. Jespersen, Mr. David, and Mr. Duff gathered together to sing, Rescue the Perishing, as part of a history unit on Pan-Americanism. The hymn chosen stemmed from the Student Volunteer Movement, a worldwide outreach of the Gospel, that started in July 1886. Rescue the Perishing was written in 1869 by Frances J. Crosby.
