Winning Souls 469

Tune: D. F. Stevens, 1902
Lyrics: Purifyís Selection of Hymns and Spiritual Songs, 1823
Meter: 7s,6s Double (7,6,7,6,7,6,7,6)
See how the wicked kingdom
Is falling every day,
And still our blessed Jesus
Is winning souls away;
But O how I am tempted,
No mortal tongue can tell,
So often I'm surrounded
With enemies from hell.

With weeping and with praying,
My Jesus I have found,
To crucify old nature,
And make His grace abound.
Dear children, donít be weary,
But march on in the way;
For Jesus will stand by you
And be your guard and stay.
