Lead me to some soul today,
O teach me, Lord, just what to say;
Friends of mine are lost in sin,
And cannot find their way.
Few there are who seem to care,
And few there are who pray;
Melt my heart and fill my life,
Give me one soul today.
Lead me to some soul real soon,
It matters not if night or noon;
Any hour of any day,
The time is opportune.
I must go Thy love to show
To sinners lost in night;
Flood my soul with love and light
To warn men of their plight.
Lead me to some soul, I pray,
Thy “Great Commission” I’ll obey;
I must tell men goin’ to Hell
That Jesus is the Way.
Men must know before they die
That Christ alone can save;
Give me pow’r to witness, Lord,
And faith to make me brave.
