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.

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]
