#306: A Passion for Souls

(Part of a series singing through the hymnbook I grew up with: Great Hymns of the Faith)


Give me a passion for souls, dear Lord,

A passsion to save the lost;

O that Thy love were by all adored,

And welcomed at any cost!


Jesus, I long, I long to be winning

Men who are lost, and constantly sinning; 

O may this hour be one of beginning

The story of pardon to tell.


Tho there are dangers untold and stern 

Confronting me in the way,

willingly still would I go, nor turn,

But trust Thee for grace each day


How shall this passion for souls be mine?

Lord, make Thou the answer clear;

Help me to throw out the old Life-Line,

To those who are struggling near.
