Representative Text

1 Would you know a joy untold?
Lead some soul to Jesus.
Many wander from the fold,
Lead some soul to Jesus.

Refrain:
Loving, longing, still he stands,
Stretching out his pierced hands;
By his grace and sweet commands,
Lead some soul to Jesus.

2 You who know his wondrous name,
Lead some soul to Jesus.
He is evermore the same,
Lead some soul to Jesus. [Refrain]

3 By his life and death for you,
Lead some soul to Jesus.
By his might and mercies new,
Lead some soul to Jesus. [Refrain]

4 Now his tender voice obey,
Lead some soul to Jesus.
“Lo, I send you,” hear him say,
Lead some soul to Jesus. [Refrain]
