We must win them one by one
As the Master did of old,
When He said to His disciples, Follow Me;
From the highways broad and wide,
To the byways turn aside,
In the footsteps of the Man of Galilee.


One by one, yes, one by one,
We must win them for Jesus one by one;
In the narrow ways of life,
Amid the tumult and the strife,
We must win them for Jesus one by one.

Is it nothing they are lost,
Souls that Jesus died to save?
Let us gladly in the rescue lend a hand;
News of life and love impart
To some weary, sinful heart,
Help some brother in the glory light to stand.


We must win them one by one
By a little kindness shown,
Or a gentle touch of human sympathy;
Stooping down from heights of ease,
Seeking only God to please,
Pointing ever to the Christ of Calvary.
