Representative Text

1 Winning souls for Jesus,
Blessed work replete with bliss!
Saved that we might others save,
Today our watchword is;
Children of the heav’nly King,
To the breeze your banners fling,
Pressing onward as we sing,
Winning precious souls.

Chorus:
Winning souls for Jesus,
Winning souls, precious souls;
Hands and heart must busy be,
Winning precious souls.

2 Winning souls for Jesus,
On His business here intent;
In the service of our King
Let ev’ry life to spent.
Time and talents, all we lay
At Thy feet O Lord today;
Use us anytime or way,
Winning precious souls. [Chorus]

3 Winning souls for Jesus,
Purchased by His precious blood.
Bidding sinners ev’rywhere
“Be reconciled to God.”
By the pow’r of Calvary
jewel gatherers are we,
For a blest eternity,
Winning precious souls. [Chorus]

Lelia (Mrs. C.H.) Morris (1862-1929) was born in Pennsville, Morgan County, Ohio. When her family moved to Malta on the Muskingum River she and her sister and mother had a millinery shop in McConnelsville. She and her husband Charles H. Morris were active in the Methodist Episcopal Church and at the camp meetings in Sebring and Mt. Vernon. She wrote hymns as she did her housework. Although she became blind at age 52 she continued to write hymns on a 28-foot long blackboard that her family had built for her. She is said to have written 1000 texts and many tunes including "Sweeter as the years go by." Mary Louise VanDyke Go to person page >
