Lyrics

Hear our watch­word loud­ly ring­ing,
Win the world for Christ;
Precious souls to Je­sus bring­ing,
Win the world for Christ;
We must all take hold to­ge­ther;
Every one must do his share;
Seek them one by one, till the work is done;
Labor on (la­bor on) with pray­er.

Refrain

Win the world for Christ;
Win one, win one!
And the work will grow, reach­ing all be­low,
Till the world is won for Christ.
Win the world for Christ;
Win one, win one!
And the work will grow, reach­ing all be­low,
Win the world (win the world) for Christ.

Send the word to ev­ery na­tion,
Win the world for Christ;
Spread the know­ledge of sal­va­tion,
Win the world for Christ;
But we’ll not for­get our neigh­bors,
Those who live be­side our door,
Speak a word of cheer to a bro­ther near,
Serving more (serv­ing more) and more.

Refrain

Tell the bless­èd Gos­pel story,
Win the world for Christ;
Till He comes again in glo­ry,
Win the world for Christ;
Toiling on with faith and cour­age,
Till the sheaves are ga­thered in;
In our spe­cial place show­ing forth His grace,
Till the world (till the world) we win.
