1. 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;
Ev’ry 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.

2. Send the word to ev’ry 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]

3. 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. [Refrain]
