I want to be a soul winner

Full Text

1 I want to be a soul winner
For Jesus ev’ry day;
He does so much for me;
I want to aid the lost sinner
To leave his erring way,
And be from bondage free.

A soul winner for Jesus,
A soul winner for Jesus,
O let me be each day;
A soul winner for Jesus,
A soul winner for Jesus,
He's done so much for me.

2 I want to be a soul winner
And bring the lost to Christ,
That they His grace may know;
I want to live for Christ ever,
And do His blessed will,
Because He loves me so. [Refrain]

3 I want to be a soul winner
Till Jesus calls for me,
To lay my burdens down,
I want to hear Him say, Servant,
“You've gathered many sheaves,
Receive a starry crown.” [Refrain]
