Representative Text

1 The Hero of the Cross will soon win all the human race!
The music of his blessed name is heard in every place,
And millions now are living in the sunshine of his face!
He is winning all the world by his love.

Refrain:
He is winning all the world by his love,
He is winning all the world by his love;
Spreading joy in every place,
Lifting souls of every race,
He is winning all the world by his love.

2 The lifting power of his love proclaims his matchless worth,
While, like the golden sun at noon, his glory fills the earth;
And nations, long in darkness, in the light are marching forth!
He is winning all the world by his love. [Refrain]

3 Repentant souls he’ll ever free from burd’ning sin and wrong,
And spread his snowy wings of peace above earth’s happy throng;
Then “Crown Him Lord of All” shall be the universal song!
He is winning all the world by his love. [Refrain]
