If you know Detweiler’s full name, or where to get a good pho­to of him (head-and-shoul­ders, at least 200×300 pix­els), would you ?


Out in the darkness of sin there are souls
Wandering in woe and in sadness;
Will you not hasten to tell them of Christ,
Turning their grief into gladness.


Win one! win one!
Back into the narrow way;
Jesus will help you the lost ones to find,
Win someone for Him today.

Many have wandered afar from the fold,
Long has the good Shepherd sought them;
Go with the story of Christ’s sacrifice,
Who with His precious blood bought them.


Tell them the promise that Jesus has made,
Sin crimson shall be forgiven;
Carry the message, ere it is too late,
Win them for Christ and for Heaven.
