Win Them One By One Hymn Story


The author of this beautiful hymn is the well known author of children's hymns, Lizzie DeArmond. She wrote this hymn in 1915.

Lizzie was born on Ju­ly 23, 1847, in Phil­a­del­phia, Penn­syl­van­ia. She died on Oc­to­ber 26, 1936, at her home in Swarth­more, Penn­syl­van­ia.

She started writing poems when she was only twelve years old. However, her most prolific period came after she became a widow with eight children to support.

It was during this period that Lizzie started to write in earnest. She wrote articles, stories as well as hymns.

As is the case with most hymns that came from the pen of Lizzie DeArmond this song was also originally meant for Sunday School children.

Win Them One By One Hymn Lyrics


1 We must win them one by one as the master did of old,
When He said to His disciples "Follow Me;"
From the highways broad and wide, to the byways turn aside,
In the footsteps of the Man of Galilee.

Chorus:

One by one, yes, one by one,
We must win them for Jesus one by one;
In the narrow ways of life, amid the tumult and the strife.
We must win them for Jesus one by one.

2 Is it nothing they are lost, souls that Jesus died to save?
Let us gladly in the rescue lend a hand;
News of life and love impart to some weary sinful heart,
Help some brother in the glory light to stand. [Chorus]

3 We must win them one by one by a little kindness shown,
Or a gentle touch of human sympathy;
Stooping down from heights of ease, seeking only God to please,
Pointing ever to the Christ of Calvary. [Chorus]

Heaven Came Down and Glory Filled My Soul Hymn

Story Behind Heaven Came Down  Heaven Came Down is a hymn that is of recent origin as it was written in 1961 by John W Peterson. It draws its inspiration from a testimony delivered by an old man named Jim at Montrose Bible Conference Grounds, Pennsylvania. During the testimony talked of his conversion experience. In the testimony he used the phrase, "It seemed like Heaven came down and glory filled my soul." It is this phrase that inspired John W Pearson to write a song using this phrase later that week.  John W Peterson wrote over a thousand hymns but it is this song that has touched and continues to touch millions of Christians all over the world. He died on September 20, 2006, at the age of 84 after suffering from prostate cancer. It is so sweet to entrust and surrender our lives to our Savior and Lord Jesus Christ. Heaven does literally come down into our hearts when we do that. John W Peterson Heaven Came Down and Glory Filled My Soul

When We Walk With The Lord Hymn (Trust And Obey) - History of hymn

When We Walk With The Lord History This hymn came about from an incident at one of Dwight L Moody's revival meetings in 1887. A young man who had just given his life to the Lord Jesus Christ was reportedly heard saying, 'I am not quite sure - I am going to trust and obey.'  Daniel B Towner- Trust and Obey The music director of the Moody Bible Institute, Professor Towner, was present at the meeting when these words were uttered. Based on these words, Professor Towner with the help of John Sammis, who developed the lyrics, composed the music to this hymn Trust and Obey or When we walk with the Lord. The words seem so simple but they express the feelings of many Christians. It is not easy to trust and obey but that is what we are all called to do if we are to be happy in Jesus. This song has remained popular with many Christian singers to this day and it is my hope that you too will be blessed by this simple but powerful Christian song. A brief Intro of

On Christ The Solid Rock I Stand (My Hope Is Built On Nothing Less) Lyrics and Story

My Hope Is Built On Nothing Else / On Christ The Solid Rock I Stand History My Hope Is Built on Nothing Less or On Christ The Solid Rock I Stand is the best-known hymn of Edward Mote who wrote it in 1834. The original title of this hymn was, "The Immutable Basis for a Sinner's Hope". Edward Mote was the pastor of Rehoboth Baptist Church in Horsham West Sussex in the United Kingdom. It looks as if the inspiration for this hymn came from Christ parable of the wise and foolish builders. In the parable, Christ speaks of the foolish builder who built his house on sinking sand while the wise builder built his on solid rock. As you would imagine a storm easily swept away the one built on sand. Edward Mote - On Christ the Solid Rock Christ is the solid rock upon which we can build our house of faith. Any other foundation is like one on sand and will ultimately fail. On the authorship of this song Mr. Mote's explanation, communicated to the Gospel Herald, is
