536. WINNING PRECIOUS SOULS TO THEE

Christ in Song,

1.
Be with us, Lord, as forth we go,
Winning precious souls to Thee;
And make our love and zeal to glow,
Winning precious souls to Thee.

Chorus:
Winning precious souls, many precious souls,
Jewels in Thy crown to be;
Help us bring them in from the ways of sin,
Many precious souls to Thee.

2.
Help us to labor faithfully,
Winning precious souls to Thee;
And gather many sheaves for Thee,
Winning precious souls to Thee.  [Chorus]

3.
We toil with feeble hands and weak,
Winning precious souls to thee;
To us new faith and courage speak,
Winning precious souls to thee.  [Chorus]

4.
As we each day our work pursue,
Winning precious souls to Thee;
Our faith increase, our zeal renew,
Winning precious souls to Thee.  [Chorus]

5.
We need Thy help, O gracious Lord!
Winning precious souls to Thee;
Go with us, and Thy aid afford,
Winning precious souls to Thee.  [Chorus]

6.
As we go forth in trust and love,
Winning precious souls to Thee;
Send down Thy blessing from above,
Winning precious souls to Thee.  [Chorus]
