Win Them One By One Hymn Story and Lyrics

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]
