1 Only one soul for Jesus!
Think not ‘tis only one,
Count not your harvest scanty;
Grieve not at set of sun;
Think of the joy in heaven!
Think what that one soul cost!
Think of the endless sorrow
If that one soul were lost.

Hark! hark! angelic hosts are singing
A song of joy untold;
One soul redeemed! one life reclaimed!
One more new name enrolled.

2 Ye who would be soul winners,
Gather them one by one,
Heart to heart work is needed,
Do as your Lord hath done;
Think of that weary journey
Under a noontide sun;
Think how your Master labored,
Seeking to save just one. [Refrain]

3 Only one soul for Jesus!
Think what one voice may say,
Leading perhaps a hundred
Into the better way!
Think of the deeds of mercy
One redeemed life may do;
Think of the songs in heaven!
You should be singing, too! [Refrain]
