Bring them in and keep them

Representative Text

1 Bring them in and keep them from going astray again,
Precious souls of Jesus, souls for whom He died;
Think not when you’ve rescued them out of their sin and stain,
They will safely ever in His love abide.

Refrain:
You must help them upward, cheer them on their way,
And in loving kindness help them day by day;
You must lead them gently toward that world above,
Till their feet are firmly planted in His love.

2 Sore temptations hover around and about their way;
Satan, loath to lose them, follows close behind,
Whispers glowing promises, leading the soul astray;
You must be a brother, faithful, true and kind. [Refrain]

3 Bring them in! for Jesus commanded you so to do;
Bring them from the highways and the waste of sin
To the fold eternal, in heaven, prepared for them;
While the door is open, lead, O lead them in. [Refrain]
