If you know Detweiler’s full name, or where to get a good pho­to of him (head & shoul­ders, at least 200×300 pix­els),


Out in the dark­ness of sin there are souls
Wandering in woe and in sad­ness;
Will you not hast­en to tell them of Christ,
Turning their grief in­to glad­ness.


Win one! win one!
Back in­to the nar­row way;
Jesus will help you the lost ones to find,
Win some­one for Him today.

Many have wan­dered afar from the fold,
Long has the good Shep­herd sought them;
Go with the sto­ry of Christ’s sac­ri­fice,
Who with His pre­cious blood bought them.


Tell them the pro­mise that Je­sus has made,
Sin crim­son shall be for­giv­en;
Carry the mes­sage, ere it is too late,
Win them for Christ and for Hea­ven.
