1 Man Sings A Cappella Rendition Of 'Rescue The Perishing' Classic Hymn

Check out this video of one man singing an a cappella rendition of the classic hymn ‘Rescue The Perishing.’

“Rescue the perishing, care for the dying, snatch them in pity from sin and the grave;
Weep o’er the erring one, lift up the fallen, tell them of Jesus the mighty to save.
Rescue the perishing, care for the dying; Jesus is merciful, Jesus will save.”

What a wonderful performance of this lovely hymn. The man singing in the video is Michael Eldridge, and he is a pharmacist by trade with a passion for singing. He is very talented and is able to sing all the different parts of the song effortlessly! He sings the bass, lead, tenor, and alto parts in this song, and he does them all so beautifully. And when he blends all the different parts together, the song sounds so full and complete.

‘Rescue The Perishing’ was written in 1869 by Fanny J. Crosby after she met the men who were housed in a New York City mission. One young man came up to Fanny and told her that he wanted to be able to get to heaven to see his mother, but thought that his way of living would not make that possible. After speaking and praying with Fanny, he accepted Jesus into his life. This meeting inspired her to write the words to ‘Rescue The Perishing.’

The composer of the hymn ‘Rescue the Perishing’ was William Howard Doane, and he collaborated with Fanny Crosby on approximately 1,000 of her hymn texts.

We hope that you enjoyed listening to this video of an a cappella version of ‘Rescue The Perishing.’ May the hymn remind us all of our duties to our neighbors as followers of Christ.

Isaiah 55:11
So will My word be which goes forth from My mouth; It will not return to Me empty without accomplishing what I desire, and without succeeding in the matter for which I sent it.
