Win Them One by One
Words and Music by C. Austin Miles

1 Corinthians 9:19
"For though I be free from all men, yet have I made
myself servant unto all, that I might gain the more."

          If to Christ our only King
          Men redeemed we strive to bring,
          Just one way this may be done -
          We must win them one by one.

            Chorus
            So you bring the one next to you,
            And I'll bring the one next to me;
            In all kinds of weather, we'll all work together,
            And see what can be done.
            If you'll bring the one next to you,
            And I bring the one next to me,
            In no time at all we'll have them all,
            So win them, win them, one by one.

          Side by side we stand each day,
          Saved are we, but lost are they;
          They will come if we but dare
          Speak a word backed up by prayer.

            Chorus
            So you bring the one next to you,
            And I'll bring the one next to me;
            In all kinds of weather, we'll all work together,
            And see what can be done.
            If you'll bring the one next to you,
            And I bring the one next to me,
            In no time at all we'll have them all,
            So win them, win them, one by one.

          Only cowards dare refuse,
          Dare this gift of God misuse;
          Ere some friend goes to his grave,
          Speak a word his soul to save.

            Chorus
            So you bring the one next to you,
            And I'll bring the one next to me;
            In all kinds of weather, we'll all work together,
            And see what can be done.
            If you'll bring the one next to you,
            And I bring the one next to me,
            In no time at all we'll have them all,
            So win them, win them, one by one.

          Not for hope of great reward
          Turn men's hearts unto the Lord;
          Just to see a saved man smile
          Makes the effort well worthwhile.

            Chorus
            So you bring the one next to you,
            And I'll bring the one next to me;
            In all kinds of weather, we'll all work together,
            And see what can be done.
            If you'll bring the one next to you,
            And I bring the one next to me,
            In no time at all we'll have them all,
            So win them, win them, one by one.
